Selfies on 66 Campaign Launches & We Have Our First Winner!
In May, 2015, the Illinois Route 66 Scenic Byway launched our new Selfies on 66 contest, and our first winner is from Evanston, IL. She shared with us the back story: "Fun fact, the visitors in the photo with me were from Argentina! Their dream was to see as much of RT 66 as possible! The photo is in Hamel, IL."
Each month, we'll select three photos to be highlighted on our social media outlets, and the photo with the most likes/comments/shares will win a commemorative Illinois Route 66 license plate and baseball hat!
But it gets better...once per year, we'll let voters choose from the 12 monthly winners, and the photo that gets the most likes/comments/shares will win our grand prize: A basket full of Illinois Route 66 memorabilia, gift certificates, and more!
Open to US residents ages 18+. For details, visit www.selfieson66.com!
BLUE CARPET CORRIDOR INAUGURAL EVENT IS A BIG SUCCESS!
When a new Route 66 event launches in Illinois, even ominous rainy weather does not hamper the enthusiasm. The inaugural Blue Carpet Corridor held on June 13th & 14th, with events and sites to see in 18 southern Illinois communities, was a perfect example! Thanks to all the volunteers and coordinators who made the event possible.
The Byway has an extensive article a huge photo gallery from the event, and we invite you to learn more about how everything went, by clicking here for details!
