News on 66, March 2015-- Part 1: Another Illinois Festival

The news stories are taken from the Route 66

MARCH 5TH:  El Garces is now open for tours.  It is the former Harvey House in Needles, California.  The $5 cost will go toward the structure's maintenance.  It opened in 1908 and is quite an impressive place.  It was fenced off and in bad shape when we saw it in 2006.

MARCH 10TH:  Illinois has a new Route 66 Motor festival.  The Red Carpet Corridor Fest is already held yearly at the end of May from Joliet to Towanda.  This June, they will also have the new Blue Corridor Corridor Festival featuring the southern part of Route 66 from Chatham (south of Springfield) to Collinsville.

Always a good idea to have a Route 66 Festival.

Good Times for All.  --RoadDog
