Mark your calendar for both weekends of the Boys State Finals (3/13-3/14 & 3/20-2/21) and the March Madness Experience in Peoria.
Since 1996, the March Madness Experience, a family-oriented extravaganza of fun, interactive games, historical exhibits and good times, has been an integral part of the Boys State Finals in Peoria. Just across the concourse from the tournament action at Carver Arena, the March Madness Experience fills up the Peoria Civic Center's huge Exhibition Hall. It's free to fans who have game tickets, and just $2 for everyone else. Once inside, there's no charge for any of the attractions.
