An idea came up , and I , we , those involved in saving the Prison for Historical reasons , Would like to have a car show at the Old Blues Brothers Prison .
We need input on how one would do it .What do you need , how to get it off the ground .
so far , we think a DJ , Porta Johns , Dash plaques, food vendor's . But what is a general idea of cost as how does the revenue made if any, find its way back to the Preservation commitee.
any input from the community will help .
None of US know how to do it , but think its a great idea .After all who would not like a photo of their car in a prison yard.

Where do you want to have it? The main parking lot or inside the sally port on interior of the complex? I worked there as a guard for four years from 81 to 84. As I recall, there isn't much room inside the walls for such an event. I'd say the south main gate house area would be a good choice. Big parking lot with the prison as a nice backdrop. Blues Brothers was filmed off of Collins Street on the east side.
