Fireworks and music part of Labor Day weekend in Peru

Posted by wlpo on August 29, 2014

A party on Water Street that was delayed by flooding along the Illinois River will finally happen. Bring your family and lawn chairs to the Peru riverfront Saturday night for fireworks, music and food.

Traditionally, the Peru fireworks display is on July 3 but flooding along the river washed out the area from where the fireworks are usually launched. Police Chief Doug Bernabei also thought it was too dangerous to have people sitting so close to the swollen river.

You’ll find what you would normally see: a CSO beer garden, a kids’ area near Maze Lumber, and live music. The fireworks begin at dusk and will be synchronized to music on Classic Hits 103.9 WLPO.

You won’t be able to drive down to Water Street after 7:30pm. Parking won’t be allowed on a number of the streets on the way down to Water Street.
