    Route 66 Rendez-vous: The Great Celebration of America's Mother Road

    With Lightning McQueen descending on the California park next year, Historic Route 66 is of particularly-timely interest to many MiceChat users. And, on September 15-18, the historic core of the city of San Bernardino will pedestrianize 38 blocks in order to host the Route 66 Rendez-vous, a festival which attracts more than 500,000 visitors each year along with 2,448 historic automobiles, one for each mile of the original route from Chicago to Los Angeles.

    Explain to me how "pedestrianizing" celebrates driving on Route 66??
    (I find that ironic.)

    We may do this. We traveled some of 66 out by Oatman AZ. We later stayed with the kids in the Wigwam. IF all goes well we'll be on part of 66 again next year for our MidWest trip.

    If anyone made it please post the photos. We weren't able to go. Minor family emergency, my son is in the hospital recovering from an asthma attack last night. He LOVES classic cars so again if anyone went please post a TR.

    Thanks everyone.

    There's one more day, in addition to the rest of the evening, for the festival.

    THANK YOU PRAG

    My son hopefully comes home this afternoon. They have a pc in the play area with internet access and I've already sent the link to my wife. As I said we'd planned on going this weekend but a severe asthma attack cut our plans short. Now he can enjoy the cars!
