I’ve been dying to make this announcement for awhile, but locking in the final details prevented us from doing it til’ now. So here goes…
Lucky Joplin, MO gets to be host to the Route 66 international festival this week… and 9art was invited to be a part of it! One of the highlights of the event is the presence of the real life stars of Disney/Pixar’s film ‘Cars’… that’s right kids, Mater & Lightning McQueen will be HERE, in person, this weekend.
That’s where we come in. We are setting up a special photobooth where you can have your photo taken in front of the full size cars. We’re not talking a background… this is the REAL DEAL.
To cut back on confusion… I realize that yes, we are calling this a photobooth, and no, it is not a conventional photobooth. So yeah, that means it’s not really a booth. At all. 🙂 But to tell you the truth, our ‘photobooth’ has never been a conventional photobooth, but folks know what I’m talking about when I refer to it as such during third thursday and other events.
There are two separate times/places:
#1: carthage route 66 drive in. We will be set up there from 6:30- 8:30. a quick note there: you can only get in for this one if you’ve bought tickets already, as the event is very much sold out. But if you’re not already going to be there for that one, moving on to…
#2: downtown joplin. We (and the cars) will be set up at the intersection of 5th & main from 5pm to 7:30pm on Saturday evening (the third). There are no tickets or formal schedules involved for this photobooth, so just come on by anytime in that timeframe!
we will be offering special discounted packages to those that order AT the event. We will be prepared to take pretty much any form of payment you throw at us (yes, including credit cards) so come prepared if you want to get the best deal. If you’d rather order later, no worries, we’ll still have prints available to order at our usual rates!
The festival itself: Photos aside, the full festival event actually lasts for 3 days and is PACKED with stuff to do. Concerts, car shows, food, and plenty more. find out more about it on the main site: route66internationalfestival.com
