Mural to be unveiled during Lebanon’s Route 66 festival Print E-mail
Wednesday, 14 June 2017

The Lebanon-Laclede County Route 66 Society has released an image of the new mural set to be unveiled Saturday during the Lebanon Route 66 Festival at the city’s Boswell Park.

The 10-by-20-foot mural depicts a 1929 Texaco gas truck crossing the Gasconade River bridge in eastern Laclede County. It will join another mural at the park  depicting a 1957 Chevrolet driving Route 66 at the entrance to Lebanon, which was unveiled last year.

The mural unveiling will be part of a program at 2 p.m. Saturday of the festival on a stage by the murals.

The two-day festival begins at 1 p.m. with live music Friday at the historic Munger Moss Motel. Events include a cruise-in featuring antique, classic and custom cars, a photo booth, a barbecue, auction, dancing and more.

Saturday’s festivities will begin with a parade of antique, classic and custom cars at 10 a.m. along Historic Route 66 from the Lebanon Industrial Park near the Munger Moss Motel to Boswell Park.

Parking will be available at the Nelson Park ballfields, with shuttle service available to Boswell Park. Parking also will be available at nearby Elm Street businesses that are closed that day.

Festivalgoers should bring lawn chairs or blankets for activities at both locations.

“The festival is coming together nicely,” said Loretta Young, chairman of the Route 66 Society’s Festival Committee. “Everything is falling into place. We look forward to starting a new Route 66 tradition.”

The festival is making its return after a seven-year absence, thanks to a partnership between the Lebanon-Laclede County Route 66 Society and the Lebanon Parks and Recreation Department. Previous festivals were held from 2001 to 2009.
