Thanks to Pontiac, Illinois, Tourism Director, Ellie Alexander, for providing the following press release to get us "thinking spring!"
The 13 communities situated along historic Route 66 between Joliet and Towanda, Illinois, are already deep into the process of planning the 2014 Red Carpet Corridor Festival. This year’s event will be held on May 3rd and May 4th in each of the towns. The tradition of each town offering its own unique set of events for the festival will continue, and planned events include car and motorcycle shows, cook-offs, art displays, live musical performances, retail shopping specials, contests, cruises, fun runs, and antique, collectible merchandise. Many communities will have yard sales, garage sales, and flea markets to satisfy the shopping needs of most people. To assist festival-goers in finding the best shopping bargains, the Red Carpet Corridor committee recently announced a new partnership with Kickson66Sale.com. Kicks on 66 Sale is a multi-municipal destination shopping event which will run concurrently with the Red Carpet Corridor Festival along the 90-mile corridor of Route 66 that runs from Joliet to Towanda.
