Pekin Marigold Festiv

The Pekin Annual Marigold Festival is truly an event the whole family can enjoy, even your family dog. The festival, which takes place each September, provides a weekend full of fun, carnival rides, parades, contests, entertainment, and much more, with its kick off being Pekin's Top Dog Contest. It is also a time for locals to showcase their talents, take part in the Subway Miss Marigold Pageant, and be nominated as Grand Marshall of the whole event. If so much excitement is not your thing, you can relax by attending the annual art show or car show, while avoiding the carnival atmosphere altogether.

Learn About Your Wild

Some of the best fun you will ever have is in the outdoors right in your own community. Just a short drive from Pekin is the Wildlife Prairie State Park, which is home to over 150 different animals native to the state. The park allows guests to learn about each animal, visit them in their natural habitat, and then explore the grounds. You can bike, hike, fish, and even ride a train. If a day is not all you want to spend at the park, you are in luck. The park has lodging available if you wish to stay a little longer.

Spend a Day at the Ri

If you want to take a few classes, enjoy some exhibits, or just soak up some culture, the Peoria Riverfront Museum is just the place for you. With dozens of exhibits, and many of them changing every few months, there is always something new to take in. The museum also provides classes on various subjects throughout the year, which can be used for a little extra education or to enhance a degree you already have. Here is a place that all family members can enjoy and since it is ever changing, nobody will ever grow bored with it.
