The village of Manteno is taking advantage of the growing popularity in recent years of Illinois cities that have allowed golf carts on village/city streets.
Manteno's first ever golf cart parade kicks off this (Friday) at 6:45 in Heritage Park. Village Event Planner Sarah Marion says expect the parade entries to show their creativity in a big way.
"We encourage people to get creative with their golf cart. We just don't want candy throwing during the parade," Marion said. "We have a convenient charm about our community."
Marion says golf cart owners from outside the community have asked to join the parade as well. More information about the parade and about the town is online at www.villageofmanteno.com
