Attendance at Springfield festival remains stable September 29, 2008

Posted by Ron Warnick in Events.

Crowd numbers at the International Route 66 Mother Road Festival in Springfield, Ill., this past weekend were about the same as last year, reports the Springfield Journal-Register.

The three-day event, which ended Sunday, had an attendance of about 70,000 people, with 847 paid, registered cars on display and more than 1,000 vehicles participating in the Friday night parade, he added.

“In this season of car shows and gas prices, there have been up to 30 percent less attendance at car shows across the country,” he said. “We feel really good that we’re close to last year with participants.”

And a longtime roadie, Roadmaven, posted a video from the festival’s cruise:

That’s great news about the show, and it’s attendance. The youtube video was fun too. I’ll have to make it back to Springfield one of these days to take in this event.
