Kickoff The New Year In Central Illinois

Written By: Andrew Ketterer

The Peoria Area is perfect for that special New Year’s Eve night. Some events have a high-end feel of an exclusive big city party, while many of the events have a small city feel, with a cozy atmosphere and affordable prices. And for those of you looking for a bit of both, don’t you worry; we have that too.

No matter what you’re thinking for welcoming in the New Year, be sure to check out a few of the featured events in the Peoria Area.
