The City of Springfield is getting ready for the Route 66 Festival. It starts Friday and runs through Sunday (8/12-8/14) throughout downtown.
The event will feature classic car and motorcycle shows, concerts, parades, an ice cream social, drive-in movie, a poker run and a 6.6 mile run/walk. There will also be Route 66 authors, artists, collectors and associations displaying and selling their wares.
The Route 66 Festival started in 2010 as a small car show hosted by the West Central Neighborhood Alliance.
