Today they will drive 108 miles. Check it out below: I promise you won't go away dissapointed. They have people movers and encourage you to bring your carts. The Kinzee Big Blue is the feature this year. It is a Biannual event. Be there after school lets out today.

I was there on Friday and Saturday. This was the third show at Rantoul I have attended and there is no way to describe what all goes on. If you can only attend one show a year, this one is it. The next show won't be until 2013 though.

I was stationed there at Rantoul, guess they turned part of the base into the fairgrounds area. Some of it into a military school. Its on my list to attend one of these years.
