Save the date! Visit Effingham will be hosting the Corvette Welcomefest Downtown Party from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 15th, and you're invited to enjoy an evening of classic cars! Corvettes will parade down Jefferson Avenue at approximately 5:30 p.m. to join the party, parking in the spaces surrounding the Historic Effingham County Courthouse Museum and bringing the Mid America Motorworks: Corvette Fun Run Road Tour to a close. We encourage residents to come downtown, Friday night, and watch the Corvettes roll in!
