Carnival Moved

Due to the soggy conditions in Mineral Springs Park, and the concern about potentially more rain before the festival, the Commerce Bank Carnival will be moved this year to the paved parking lot behind the Pekin Park District Administration Building.  Many people still refer to this as the old pool lot.  This will also require closing parts of Coal Car Drive and Recreation Drive north of the Administration Building.

Vehicles that used to park in the old pool lot can now park in the grass of ball diamonds 4 & 5 where the carnival would have been located.  At this point that area can handle vehicle parking but would not be able to support the weight of the carnival vehicles.

Two shuttle busses sponsored by Peoria Limousine Company and Pekin/Peoria Yellow Checker Cab will run continuously from 8:00am to 6:00pm, Saturday and Sunday stopping at posted locations.
