Attention Visitors:   Sixth Avenue is a part of Route 66 through town, and is the historic San Jacinto District in Amarillo.  It is about 20 blocks west of downtown Amarillo with thriving businesses, restaurants, bars, antique shops, tattoo parlors, etc.  Locals call it "6th Street", and it is just a few blocks north of the Ambassador Hotel & the Galleries At Sunset Center.  Our part for the festival will be blocked off to traffic from McMasters/Georgia St. (McMasters runs north, Georgia runs south at that intersection) for 10 blocks to accommodate foot traffic, the Car & Motorcycle Show & the Bandstand.
San Jacinto dwellers live in one of Amarillo's earliest bedroom communities.

(1) Platted in 1909 as San Jacinto Heights, the neighborhood was designed to be a self-contained suburb of small businesses and residences that people reached by streetcar. It remained sparsely populated until it was incorporated into the Amarillo city limits in 1925.

(2) Galleries at Sunset Center, 3701 Plains Blvd.
(Not on 6th. Ave)

(3) The Nat Ballroom at 604 S. Georgia began life in 1922 as a natatorium, or indoor swimming pool. The Texas Historical Commission places the Nat's castle-like structure among the "whimsical architecture"
that popped up along roadways as Americans fell in love
with the automobile in the 1920s. The building boasted a
north face that resembled a large ocean vessel.
The building's transformation into the Nat Ballroom in
1926 came with the installation of a 10,000-square-foot maple dance floor to cover the pool. In the late 1920s, '30s and '40s, the site was filled with the live sounds of Guy Lombardo, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, and Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.
