Come see hundreds of exciting vehicles and more as the City hosts the 5th annual Birthplace of Route 66 Parade.
While the Birthplace of Route 66 Parade can be viewed along the entire route (College & Fort east through the square to National & St. Louis), the prime viewing area will be at the grandstand in front of the lot north of the Expo Center on St. Louis Street.
Parade watchers are encouraged to arrive at the grandstand by 5:15 p.m. in order to enjoy a special performance by Springfield Little Theatre's Y.E.S. Troupe and the cast of NEWSIES starting at 5:30 p.m. Nearby paid parking for the grandstand is available in the Jordan Valley Car Park garage, accessible via Trafficway Street.
This year's parade starts at College and Grant and ends at St. Louis and National. The main viewing "stage" will again be near the Expo Center on St. Louis St.
