“Driving the Dixie”
June 18th, 2016
Discover Historic Dixie Highway
New events are being planned!
The Format: Being much like a “Scavenger Hunt”, participants will follow individual instructions to points of interest
within the Dixie Highway communities, where event "Passports" will be validated. Also, several secret passport location will earn bonus drawing tickets at the prize drawing in Momence.
New Maps: South is on the top and North on the bottom. Lay the map down and follow the turns as you need to do them. No more reading upside down.
The Destinations: Visit the oldest operating Business
along the Dixie Highway, view Sears Roebuck homes, view historic murals in two separate locations, and take a trip around the lake.
Car Show Hold: Homewood at St. Paul parking lot 18200 Dixie Highway
The time: Blue Island-registration begins at 8:30 am. and ends at 10:00 sharp. Meet in the parking lot kitty-corner from Moraine Valley Collage in Blue Island on Western Ave. Enjoy a cup of "java" and a donut with friends and leave at your leisure.
Passports will be issued the day of the event. All participants must leave form this point, no passports will be issued at any other point.
The Experience: This is a “take your time, travel and
explore at your leisure” event. We would like everyone to get to know the Historic Dixie highway and the interesting places along the route.
