Route 66 Roadies Heading to Lebanon, Missouri for 66 Festival This Weekend
From Lebanon 66 Organization. Gary Sosniecki.
"Celebrating Cap Joy" is this year's theme as the sole remaining cabin has been restored and will be dedicated at Boswell Park.
This is the 12th annual festival since 2001.
Friday the party will be at Route 66 businesses on the east side of town and Saturday at Boswell Park, downtown. All events are free and open to the public.
Camp Joy was one of Lebanon's first tourist courts, founded by the Spears family in 1927.
Friday, the celebration is called the Route 66 Block Party. Festivities will be around Wrink's Market and the Munger-Moss Motel. There will also be a cruise-in according to Munger-Moss Motel owner Ramona Lehman. Phat Mike and the Bartenders will play.
Saturday there will be a parade and the Bucket Band from Kansas will perform.
Sounds Like A Lot of Fun. --RoadDog
