|THE 10 th ANNUAL ILLINOIS RT. 66 RED CARPET CORRIDOR
MAY 7-8, 2016
It is all about family fun on the most famous road in America - Route
66. This year’s Red Carpet Corridor Festival will take place on
Saturday, May 7, from 8 AM to 5 PM, and Sunday, May 8, from 8 AM
to 3 PM. Sponsored by the twelve communities which make up the
90-mile linear museum from Joliet to Towanda, the annual festival
invites everyone to experience the good life in the slow lane.
Each community will produce its own events. From full-blown festivals
to antique and craft sales, art sales, car and motorcycle shows, live
entertainments, and plenty of yard, garage, and sidewalk sales along
the way, everyone is sure to discover something unique.
Food, snacks and treats will be in abundance, and there are plenty of
historic sites, outstanding free museums and unique mom & pop
businesses to help create a nostalgic journey for all to enjoy. Visitors
can simply enjoy the drive, or stop and get out of the car to have their
picture taken with Elvis, or do a little shopping in any of the great
stores along the Mother Road.
