Fall is one of the best times of the year in Illinois. The weather is cooling down, the holiday decorations are going up, and the activities list is growing longer and longer. Here are some of the most fun events in Peoria, near Eureka this fall.
Wicked. What better way to celebrate the Halloween season than by going to see Wicked in theaters? On Wednesday, October 26, this fantastic play will be showing in the Peoria Event Center at 7:30pm.
Haunted Peoria Tour. Do you know all of the myths and legends surrounding Peoria? Come out to the haunted Peoria tour, which runs every Saturday and Sunday throughout October, to learn about the ghost stories of Peoria.
Relax Under the Stars. A free event that is perfect for the entire family, Relax Under the Stars takes place in the Planetarium of the Peoria Riverfront Museum every first Wednesday of the month from 12pm- 1pm.
Hayrides and Hotdogs. There is nothing that says fall quite like a hayride on a cool autumn day, though hotdogs are a huge bonus. On October 20th at Sommer Park (5pm-7pm), there will be hayrides, food, sack races, and all kinds of other fall activities.
