We thank Will County Representative, Dorothy McMullen, for submitting the following information for us to share:
Come join the fun and excitement on Sunday, June 10, 2012, at Elwood’s beautiful Lloyd Erickson Park. The celebration is the finale of the Illinois Route 66 Association’s annual two day motor tour of the historic highway. This event is open and free to everyone.
Listen and dance to the music of Jim Hannah and the Country Boys with Ron Gonsoulin. They will keep the place jumping from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Enjoy the local favorite foods and drinks, explore the Children’s Garden, bring the family and enjoy an old fashioned country gathering.
When the last song is sung and the sun goes down, stay for the movie in the park; reminiscent of a drive-in theatre experience.
