Live, from Peoria, Illinois, it’s Thursday Night starring this week’s host, The Peoria Riverfront Museum with a cavalcade of special guests, food and fireworks on this festive 4th of July!
Now please welcome this week’s holiday host from beautiful downtown Peoria, The Peoria Riverfront Museum!
Here we are at the Peoria Riverfront Museum for the 7th annual backyard BBQ! I can’t believe this is the 7th year for this and I also can’t believe it’s already the 4th of July! Guess I’m not like Mickey Dolenz!
Let’s go outside, that’s where all the action is. Wow, they’ve got a great crowd this year! Let’s go say hi to some of the friendly faces in the crowd!
Hello, friendly faces in the crowd! I saw old friends and made some new ones! Thanks to everyone for letting me take your photo with the trusty MBIP Camera!
There’s an all you can eat buffet down there that’s catered by Cracked Pepper. Let’s go get in line.
As you can see, the line is long, but it moves fast. The fare is 4th of July goodies including hot dogs, pulled pork, green beans, pasta salad, potato chips and Rice Krispies treats.
Here’s my meal, it was delicious! But can I request one thing for next year?
Next year leave the peas out of the pasta! Unlike The Plastic Ono Band, I refuse to give peas a chance!
Alright, night is falling on the Peoria Riverfront Museum. That can only mean one thing…
It’s time for the fireworks celebration to begin!
They put on another fantastic fireworks show this year! So sparkly and colorful!
And before you knew it, it was all over and now it’s Monday.
Happy 8th of July everyone!
