Annual Leaf Twirl Drive

November 9, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Don’t put those fantastic sports cars away just yet!

Please join us for the annual Leaf Twirl scenic drive along Illinois River Roads to Starved Rock Lodge on Saturday, November 9th.

This year we’ll start from EastPort Marina in East Peoria. We will enjoy a beautiful relaxing colorful fall drive on some of the prettiest tree lined roads Illinois has to offer on our way to the premier destination for celebrating nature.

We’ll gather at the boat landing behind Jonah’s Seafood House at Mariners Way and Rt. 116 at 1PM. We can visit for a bit, take some pictures and then head north on Rt. 116 promptly at 1:30 in a fantastic procession of Beautiful Bimmers or whatever you chose to drive.

We will arrive at spectacular Starved Rock Park in time to enjoy some unparalleled scenery, and your Illini Chapter will buy appetizers for you to enjoy as we relax by the fire or out on the veranda.

It’s a lovely place to have dinner, and then depart for home on your own using your preferred route. Or if you prefer to stay late – or even stay overnite! – live music starts at 8pm.

This will be a rain or shine event, and there is no fee to participate in the drive. Please RSVP to contact@illinibmw.com stating your name and number in your party.
