EVENT: 45rd annual West Peoria 4th of July Parade
WHEN: Friday July 4th, 2014

We were once again be asked to participate in the longest running 4th of July parade in central Illinois coordinated by the the West Peoria Lions Club. This parade is about 2 miles long and has great crowd numbers and participation. Another plus to this one is the parade route is flat and mostly shaded. As in the past we had several people stop us along the parade route to thank us for coming out and braving the heat for their entertainment. Several also stated that they look forward to seeing us every year in the parade. We can always use more people for this next year!


Attendees:
Mark Berry (4265) (Coordinator)
Jim Lawver (761) Tusken
Brad Hartsock (1397) TK
