The City of Effingham’s Tourism Office will be hosting a Downtown Party from 5 to 8 pm Thursday, September 19, to kick-off Mid America Motorworks’ 20th Annual Corvette Funfest, and everyone is invited to join in welcoming Corvette enthusiasts to Effingham!
Mid America Motorworks’ Fun Run Road Tour will end in downtown Effingham, with a Corvette parade that will come right down Jefferson avenue. The Corvettes are expected to arrive downtown around 5:00 - 5:30 pm. Following the parade, the Corvettes will park around the Historic Courthouse Museum lawn and parking lots adjacent to the square.
We expect approximately 500 Corvettes to participate in the parade this year. So make sure you come out to see the parade, and stay for the Gabby Goat cookout, fresh kettle corn, tropical sno, free souvenirs and giveaways, live music by Jed Adam Band and Andy Rueter and plenty of fun for the whole family! Start off the weekend right by enjoying this fun party full of one-of-a-kind Corvettes!
