The 2022 Birthplace of Route 66 Festival Parade promises to be the best yet! With more than 700 classic cars, trucks and other surprises, this highly anticipated parade makes it way down Route 66 through Springfield on Friday evening, beginning at 6 p.m.

The best viewing locations for the parade are at Park Central Square, near Motorcycle Village at St. Louis and Jefferson, or at many locations along College and St. Louis St. to spread out along the way. Bring your lawn chairs and find a place to sit back and enjoy the ride.
