Mumford & Sons brought its Gentlemen of the Road Stopover to Dixon, Illinois this weekend. It was part music festival, part celebration of American towns. The historic main street area of Dixon hosted a street festival that took over the weekend, drawing thousands of visitors and locals to the bars, restaurants and assorted businesses of downtown. Many of them decorated their establishments to commemorate the event -- several of our favorite employees and storefronts of Dixon are below.
