After the fireworks have faded, auto enthusiasts from across the area will descend on downtown Mahomet for the annual Mahomet Auto Fest.
Last year’s event boasted 135 cars on display, “so we’re hoping for at least that many” at this year’s show, set for July 5, said Theresa Berry of the Mahomet Area Chamber of Commerce.
If you enjoy the Fourth of July celebration at Lake of the Woods each summer, organizers hope you’ll take it a step further and join them in making the event possible.
“This is really a community event,” said Pat Simpson, volunteer coordinator for the Champaign County Forest Preserve District.
A piece of United States Navy history will visit Mahomet on Saturday, as the U.S.S. Wainwright Traveling Museum makes a stop at Mahomet IGA.
The exhibit includes artifacts and history about the historic vessel, now decommissioned.
It's not too late to sign up for Mahomet's Mini Relay for Life, set for this Saturday at Mahomet-Seymour High School.
Organizers say that teams and individuals can still register online at www.relayforlife.org/mahometil or at the event on that evening.
So far, 24 teams have signed up, with donations totaling near $5,000.
Last week, purple tires began appearing in the yards of Mahomet residents. It’s not litter—it’s a fundraiser for next spring’s Mini-Relay for Life.
The official Community-Wide Garage Sale map can be found on page 14 of the Oct. 9 Mahomet Citizen, available on news stands late Wednesday.
