Joplin will dedicate Route 66 Mural Park on Thursday

The Joplin, Mo., Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon-cutting to dedicate the Route 66 Mural Park at 6:05 p.m. Thursday, according to a news release from the chamber.

The park near at Seventh and Main — where two alignments of Route 66 intersect — features one-half of a 1964 Corvette embedded in a wall as a photo op.

The mural includes two Route 66-themed murals — “Cruisin’ into Joplin” and “The American Ribbon” — created by Joplin-based Images in Tile that were dedicated in August as part of the opening of the Route 66 International Festival.
