Expect over 100 antique cars of all types to gather this Saturday, June 16, at the corner of Western Avenue and High Street for the annual Drivin’ the Dixie car show and tour. Celebrating historic Dixie Highway–known locally as Western Avenue, but once part of a National highway that stretched from Chicago to Miami Beach–the “Dixie Dash” takes motorists injectable steroids from Blue Island to Momence, with each community spotlighting historic sites and hosting special events.
After you wave goodbye to the last motorists, head into the neighborhood for the annual Yard Sale on the Hill. Look for signs with balloons in front of participating homes. Maps of all participating homes are available at each location, and the sale easily walkable, stretching from 127th to Vermont St and from Western Ave west to Highland Ave.
