        I'm about an hour South of St Louis along I-55 in Missouri, so, not too far away.
        Where can I find more info about Lakestiva 2020?
        How long will it run? Lodging, events, schedule, activities etc.... Thanks in advance.

            Usually goes from 10:30am to 5 ish pm
            how ever long you wanna stand around and talk really.
            Theres a center stone inn & suites in carlyle and Mariners village. If you google carlyle Illinois hotels you'll find them on a few different booking sights. Theres also camping available at several locations around that lake all would be just a short drive from the meet. With the coronavirus going on most everything at the lake is shut down. Just day use is open to the public so no camping as of now but that should change before the meet I'll do my best to keep everyone up dated here as I get more information .

              As for scheduled we're pretty layed back just hang out talking festivas then agree on a place to eat and head there. People coming out usually post up stuff they wanna sell or trade and we get a bit of a swap meet going. If you have any suggestions post them up and we'll try and make it happen.

                Hello William, put me down for another maybe. I would love to join the group for the day. I would be coming from Albuquerque, New Mexico en route to Chicago area to visit my parents.
                I would like to do the trip in my Festiva if I could complete the restoration in time, otherwise it would be in a new generic Enterprise car rental. I won't need accommodations with my parents house being only another 4-5 hours up the road. We will see what happens in the next 5 weeks and if things are going well,I will be there. Thanks for the invite.
                Rick
                '88 Festiva LX 5 speed, A/C, Carb, restored $$$ body paint, badly wrecked @ 200k.
                '93 Festiva L, 5 speed, Aqua, bought from the original owner,.Zero rust but very nasty otherwise. Awaits the B6T.
                '91 Festiva L, 5 speed, bought to drive while putting the B6T in the '93. now B6ME powered.

                    Just checking in to see if the meet is still on. Safe distance and such or the Lake/park closed.

                    Charlie Z and I will be a maybe. I'll have to talk him into living close to the edge.

                    looking for your reply.

                      Lake and area shut down. Don't know about the parking lot at the restaurant and it's parking lot where we set up and meet.

                        As far as I know the day use is still open I'll check into it. And we're still planning on having the meet. I'm hoping in the next few weeks things open back up. If things are shut down and we cant have the meet I will make sure to post it up here.

                          Well looks like lakestiva is canceled this year. I was hoping they would open the state may 1s but we're shut down till June. Thankfully I'm still working but I know lots of people are not at this time. Hope all of you are doing okay through all of this mess.
