It's that time of the year again....the annual Steamboat Days Festival! Get ready for three days of fun around Peoria's Riverfront. The 42nd annual Steamboat Days Festival combines a bigger, better carnival, delicious food and drinks, great musical entertainment and more in a family-friendly atmosphere! Don't miss the return of the All American Lumberjack Show, great regional and local bands, and many other activities and attractions! To kickoff the festival, the carnival opens on Thursday, June 13. Also on Thursday, June 13, PACE proudly presents the Steamboat Days Kickoff Cruise aboard the Spirit of Peoria, featuring The New Imposters. Guests must be at least 21 for this event.
I can't wait for the lumberjack show! According to the schedule, there will be one Friday night at 7pm and one on Saturday at 9am, noon and 7pm. I haven't actually seen one of these in person but I love watching them on TV. And I think I am going to get on the Spirit of Peoria cruise Thursday night, too. I took two cruises with them last summer and it's just so nice and relaxing. Plus Thursday there will be a band playing. It's a 21 and over show so plan on having some adult fun! And look for Tim Ylinen out there Friday afternoon giving out GLO t-shirts. There will be family entertainment by the riverfront all weekend, so get out and have some fun downtown this weekend!
