Push continues to relocate annual July fireworks display in Peru

Posted by wlpo on September 28, 2015

What do you think about moving Peru’s annual fireworks display from Water Street to the Illinois Valley Regional Airport?

The Peru Parks and Recreation Board is having a meeting Tuesday afternoon at the airport to go over plans to for having fireworks at the airport next July. The meeting agenda even says the board could start the application process of asking the state to use part of the airport for fireworks.

The city has decided to move away from the traditional fireworks site along Water Street because of flooding on the Illinois River the last two summers.
