The streets of downtown Springfield will be filled with cars this weekend… but they won’t be moving. The annual International Route 66 Mother Road Festival runs through Sunday, with hundreds of classic cars expected on display.
Most major downtown roads will be closed through Sunday afternoon… including 5th and 6th from Jefferson to Capitol, and Washington, Adams, Monroe and Capitol between 4th and 7th Streets.
The event gets underway with a cruise from Capital City Shopping Center, west on Stevenson to 6th , and then north into downtown. That gets underway Friday evening around 6:15.
