With a population of 2,038 (according to wikipedia), Amboy Illinois hosts Depot Days August 24-27. I have no idea how the 50/50 drawing went from $8,400 in 2001 all the way up to $149,333 in 2015! Severe weather last year, brought the total down to ONLY $135,903...but they expect this year to SHATTER records!
