The City of Effingham's Tourism Office will be hosting a Downtown Party from 5 to 8:00 p. m. Friday June 6th, and residents are invited to join in welcoming
Volkswagen enthusiasts to Effingham.

Mid America Motorworks' Fun Run Road Tour will end in downtown Effingham, with Volkswagens set to park in the spaces surrounding the Historic Effingham County Courthouse Museum. Volkswagens are set to come down the parade route at approximately 5:30 p. m.

Activities will include food from the Gabby Goat American Pub & Grill, Aunt Kim's Kettle Corn, Tropical Sno, live musical entertainment from Russ Howard, a performance from Exclusively Dance, great giveaways, a chance to win an iPad Mini and of course, a chance to see a variety of Volkswagens! We have fun planned for the kids too, including bubbles and sidewalk chalk.
