Glen Carbon Heritage MuseumL 11-12 June 2016
On June 11th and 12th, the second annual Blue Carpet Corridor Festival.
2016 marks the 90th anniversary of the Mother Road (Route 66). Route 66 junkies will be welcomed to Glen Carbon with an Open House, at the Museum, featuring musical entertainment. George Portz and the Friends of Blue Grass is scheduled to play from 1-4 on Saturday, June 11th and The Red Haired Boys on Sunday, June 12th, also from 1-4.
Glen Carbon is lucky enough to have a small portion of this famous road run through the Village. During the month of June, a special Route 66 exhibit will be displayed featuring a paver from a section of the original Mother Road that ran from Edwardsville to Hamel. The Museum will also have a “selfie” station with a Route 66 Road Sign. For more information on the Blue Carpet Corridor check the website bluecarpetcorridor.org
