[ARCHIVED] City Plans 2014 Red Carpet Corridor Festival

Pontiac, Illinois—The City of Pontiac is excited to announce plans for the 8th Annual Red Carpet Corridor Festival. In downtown Pontiac on Saturday, May 3rd from 8am-5pm and Sunday, May 4th from 8am-3pm the City will hold its first ever Trunkin’ Treasure sale. Instead of driving around looking for the garage sales, the sales will all be in one convenient location. Residents are invited to load up their car, drive downtown, and sell their treasures. Along with individual trunk sales, there will also be local organizations and local businesses getting in on the action. Liz Vincent, Tourism Specialist for the City of Pontiac, came up with the idea for the Trunkin’ Treasure sale. She stated that, “Since the festival is partnering with the Kicks on 66 sale for the first time this year, we thought it would be nice to get the local garage sales all in one place to make our visitors’ treasure hunt even easier.”

In addition to the Trunkin’ Treasure sales, all museums will be open. Other planned activities include mural picture scavenger hunt, mural geocaching, local entertainment, interactive children’s mural, and a carnival. The Pontiac Parks and Recreation will also be holding their annual Touch-a-Truck event Saturday. The Vermillion Players will debut their latest show “On the Road Again (Mother Road, that is!)” on Saturday evening at 7:30 at the Chautauqua Park Pavilion in a free performance for the public.

Red Carpet Corridor is a multi-city, annual event taking place along 90 miles of Route 66. Each town along the way offers their own unique event. Registration to reserve a spot for the Trunkin’ Treasure event will open March 31st, 2014. Registration is free but must be done in advance. Space is limited.
