The Honor America Celebration will be held at Pekin Community High School’s 10,000 seat, handicapped-accessible stadium. Football field seating will be available, and guests may bring chairs, blankets, wagons, etc. The display begins at nightfall on July 4th with a rain date the following evening.

Proceeds from concessions sales directly benefit the sports teams of Pekin Community High School. The Pekin Police Foundation will also have glow sticks for $2 in the stadium and throughout Mineral Springs Park.
Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Amy McCoy states, “We are genuinely excited to be able to offer this event again to our community with the help of our sponsors. The Honor America Celebration is a hallmark of our community.”
With continued increases in the cost of fireworks, community sponsorships are needed to continue the Honor America Celebration into its 75th year. The Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce accepts business sponsorships on an annual basis to fund the display. To contribute contact the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce at email@example.com.
