Peru fireworks rescheduled to Labor Day weekend

Posted by wlpo on July 2, 2014

You’ll have to wait until Labor Day weekend for the fireworks in Peru. City officials announced Wednesday that because the Illinois River is up and the ground soggy, they’ve decided to reschedule the fireworks and related activities to Sunday, August 31.

Police Chief Doug Bernabei says the high water is a safety concern and their back up launch spot is too wet.  Bernabei also says the current is strong and they’re concerned someone could drown if they fell in.

The CSO beer garden and food stands will also move to August 31.
