PEKIN (Heart of Illinois ABC) - Organizers call it ‘The Sounds of Summer’ - Pekin kicked off its series of downtown street parties Friday night.

More than a dozen vendors, community organizations and several food trucks are lined up near the corner of 3rd and Court streets until 11:00 p.m.

Each event also features a different local band - Friday night it was Stone Cold Cowboys.

“We love to bring folks down. They can sit on the courthouse lawn, hear the live music and enjoy our city,” said Amy McCoy of the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce.

“We’re looking spread awareness for our organization. We’re proud to be partnered with the Pekin chamber and to be apart of this community,” CASA’s Tazewell County coordinator Ryan Lacerna said.

The next street parties are set for August 20 and October 15.
