The event runs from 4 to 10 p.m. on Chicago Street, between Jefferson and Webster streets, and features a mix of live music, food, kids games and activities, classic autos and, of course, NASCAR drivers and their race cars.
NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick is the featured driver, who will be speaking to fans and signing autographs at the main stage. Harvick drives the No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet and is the first A-List Driver to ever appear at the Race Fan Rally. He's won 21 top series races, including the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400.
Other highlights of the rally, sponsored by the Joliet City Center Partnership, include live performances by 7th Heaven and the Cadillac Casanovas, a '50s cover band; a rock-climbing wall; a large-scale "remote control racing experience"; a controlled water fight zone; free giveaways; face painting; clowns and mascots; and classic hot rods, muscle cars and pickup trucks.
