Memorial waterfights return to honor late Peru fire chief

Posted by wlpo on June 5, 2014

Don’t panic when you see a lot of firefighters and paramedics in Peru’s Centennial Park this Saturday. They’re just having some old fashioned water fights.

The water fights are raising money for the Gary Eccles Memorial Scholarship Fund. The former fire chief in Peru died last October after a battle with cancer.

Besides the water fights, there will be vendors and food for sale starting at 10 Saturday morning. The water fights will start around 11.
