Cruise-A-Palooza was a success

Webb City’s annual festival, Route 66 Cruise-A-Palooza was a big success last weekend. 

The weather mostly cooperated for those attending to enjoy the car show, barbecue contest and food truck fare, arts & crafts and varied entertainment. The festival wound up with a bang – a fireworks display.

Proceeds are being donated to Hope for 22 a Day, an organization striving to improve the mental of veterans and first responders. 22 a Day refers to the number of veterans who commit suicide daily.
