Organizers think it’s safe to say that this year’s International Route 66 Mother Road Festival was the biggest in the event’s 12-year history.
It started with Friday night’s parade… which drew more than 22-hundred vehicles, nearly double the previous high amount. More than 1100 cars were registered for the show itself, with another 200 demo cars on display.
And Springfield police estimate that 85,000 people attended over the three-day event downtown. Plans are expected to get underway soon for next year’s event.
