Two Springfield traditions are coming together this weekend. 

 

The 20th Annual Official City Ornament has been unveiled… and this year it pays tribute to Route 66.  The introduction of the ornament coincides with the annual International Route 66 Mother Road Festival, and the collectible will be sold at the downtown event all weekend. 

 

The ornament… which depicts a Springfield landmark each year… benefits Saint Joseph’s Home, a retirement center which sits within eyesight of historic Route 66 through Springfield. 

 

The festival, meanwhile, is expected to draw a thousand classic cars and thousands of visitors into downtown through Sunday.
