Along 66, May 2018: Illinois' Red Carpet Corridor and Lebanon's Murals

MAY 5--  The Illinois Route 66 Red Carpet Corridor Festival was held this Saturday.  The event covers a 90 mile stretch of the famous road from Joliet to Towanda (by Bloomington-Normal).  This year it is to be just one day instead of Sat-Sun..

And, they promise to have more collectibles in each town.  You get a collectible in each town.  Last year we went on it and by Sunday, every place we went was out of them.

MAY 8--  The Nelson family unveiled the latest mural in Lebanon, Missouri.  It is in Boswell Park and this mural shows the long-gone Nelson Tavern and Nelson's Dream Village Motel.

We'll be seeing it this week while staying at the Munger-Moss Motel.
