(KPLR) – Sunday was a beautiful day for a jeep run, and that’s what took place on the old Chain Of Rocks Bridge.

Organizers say as many as 300 jeep owners were hoping to make the trip.

The event was sponsored by All-Star Dodge Chrysler Jeep in Bridgeton.

Organizers say the bridge has not been open to traffic for years, but they got special permission.

Participants first registered at Woody’s Pub & Grill in Caseyville.

Other stops included Old Bakery Brewery, Pere Marquette and the Loading Dock.
