Here are just a few pics from the Red Carpet Tour that happened over the weekend.
It involved 12 towns starting in Joliet and ran 90 miles south to Towanda (the town north of Bloomington/Normal).
Each town had something going on from simple stands to a carnival-like setting to having the whole downtown area closed off with things to do.
The people were as nice as can be – and it truly could have been a 5,000 calorie day with all the food and snakcs and drinks, and there was something for everyone.
I took several dozen phots and will have to go throught them one by one.
The last pic is of one of the countless murals that Pontiac IL has painted on it’s building – very good work done by folks who take pride in what they do…
