It was the first time I'd seen the Pacific Ocean, and the perfect beach at Santa Monica. A lot different than back at home in New Yawk! The significance of Route 66 wasn't lost on the merchants on the pier.
The Road Crew - America's Route 66 Band was the opening act for the International Route 66 Festival, August 2-3. Performed on Main Street in Galena, Friday and on Main Street in Joplin Saturday night. Performed for over 15,000 people in Joplin! Their mini-concert at Afton Station that Sunday afternoon was a big hit with visitors. We had a great time on Route 66! Hoping to see everyone in Kingman next year!
