1962 Route 66 filming 

Share Your Story: Route 66
Sunday, Oct. 14
2 p.m.

Did you know Lewisville, Texas, is located along the famed highway Route 66? Actually, it isn't. But that didn't stop a production crew from making a stop in Lewisville in January 1962 to tape an episode of the legendary Route 66 television program. Renamed "Kilkenny, Texas" for the episode, Lewisville served as the backdrop for stars Martin Milner, George Maharis, Tuesday Weld, Cloris Leachman, and Burt Reynolds as they filmed scenes across many of the city's iconic sites. Many residents even participated as extras during the shoot.

Do you remember the big event? Did you walk the streets of Kilkenny? Lewisville looks back at this historic event by inviting individuals to come and share their stories from the filming of the episode. Join us for a free reception and a screening of the episode, Love Is a Skinny Kid, and share your memories with us on camera. Have mementos? Bring them! We'd love to see your newspaper clippings, photos, home movies, and more.

RSVP to Kent Boring at 972.219.3740 or kboring@cityoflewisville.com. Can’t attend but want to share your story? We’d still love to hear from you.

Songwriters perform their songs a cappella or on acoustic instruments (amplified acoustic guitars are OK). We encourage solo performances, but songwriters may have an accompanist, also playing an acoustic instrument. The exception to the acoustic instrument rule is keyboard or electric bass.

There are no prizes and only two rules: Songs must be written specifically for this challenge, and must be debuted at the event.

The challenge starts at 7 p.m., though we encourage performers to arrive by 6:45 p.m. to select a performance slot on the sign-up sheet. Invite your friends and family to attend.
