This weekend is all about America and 6th street was full of celebration.
Route 66 held their Heart of Amarillo Celebration on Saturday. The celebration was previously held in the middle of June, but it was moved to match up with this weekend’s Independence Day Celebrations.
There was a car show, dunk booths, live music, and much more.
Larry Jalomo, Event Coordinator for Door Christian Fellowship said, “I really hope and believe that there are going to be many years to come, for being the first year we have seen such a tremendous turn out I would assume maybe 20-25,000 people so far have been down 6th street.”
Festival officials hope to start a new tradition by moving the Heart of Amarillo to Independence Day weekend.
