METROPOLIS, IL – Super Cruise Night fundraiser for ‘Save The Massac’ was held during the Superman Celebration 2017 at 4th and Metropolis Streets in  Washington Park across from the Library.

There was a DJ playing music inside the pavilion a few steps south from where they were serving free hotdogs and drinks with a donation. After taking some photos, I walked over to the food area, gave a donation and had the best hot dog ever.

I thank the members of the AACA Southern Illinois Region car club in Metropolis and President Michael Hausman for such a wonderful event. The food, cars, music, tractors and three-wheelers were all incredible

METROPOLIS, IL – The 39th Annual Superman Celebration 2017 was a four-day extravaganza where superheroes and villains took over Market Street in the wonderful small town of Metropolis, IL.

The YouTube video has the same photos as the gallery below but with more cars, music and a short clip of the 933rd Forward Surgical Group led into prayer by the Mayor Billy McDaniel of Metropolis.

This year’s celebration was dedicated to Noel Darleen Neill (1920-2016) best known for playing Lois Lane in the 1950s television series “The Adventures of Superman.”

I wanted to thank the awesome people in the costume contest for posing in character for us photographers outside the tent. Everyone of you looked incredible.

Also, I wanted to thank Trish from the Greater Metropolis Convention & Visitors Bureau for asking me to take a few photos for her – it was an honor and privilege.

It was a blessing to attend such a huge event with a comic hero on every corner. The Superman Celebration magically immersed everyone into a virtual comic book scene with living characters.

Take a looksee at how beautiful Market Street looks without the Superman event.
