Putnam County deputies ready for Summer Camp visitors

Posted by wlpo on May 26, 2016

Thousands will be passing through the Illinois Valley on their way to a Summer Camp that isn’t for their kids.

Billed as the “Biggest Event in the Midwest” over Memorial Day weekend, Chillicothe’s 16th Summer Camp Music Festival means many will be taking Route 29 through Bureau and Putnam Counties on their pilgrimage. Putnam County Sheriff Kevin Doyle says it means even more work during an already busy time. Doyle says the department plans to step up patrols once again but he hopes the weekend will be uneventful.

He says, overall, incidents over the festival and holiday weekend have been trending down as drivers exercise more caution on the roads.
