The town of Strafford, Mo., is planning its annual Route 66 festival, according to the Springfield News-Leader. It's trying to round up volunteers and make Route 66 more prominent.
This idea sounds intriguing:
Keiser would like to produce a live show, with "Route 66 players" who will dramatize and detail the history. Keiser has volunteered to help write the script and recruit some actors for the show he would like to feature several times during the fall festival, which is tentatively set for the second Saturday in September.
