Here is the official word from the Bombers CC:
"Due to the overwhelming response of participants planning on attending this years Bash we have had to make a very difficult decision to move the venue. This years Bombs Away Bash will be held at the East Peoria Events Center. This is just 10 miles from Crusens but offers a much better venue that will support all the folks planning to attend... The Event Center has a 20K+ square feet air conditioned indoor area that will be used for the bands and bar.. PBR, mixed drinks & food. The outdoor area is huge, over 10 acres!! Now, not only will we be having the bands, but we will be announcing new entertainment and events to the day.. such a motorcycle stunt show & a burnout contest.
This years bands: The Empires, The KrankDaddies and The Bible Belt Sinners...
We will be making updates with local hotel & might be offering camping on-site.We are very happy to announce this change and if you have any questions please let us know!!!!!
Bombs Away Bash #5
East Peoria Events Center
4200 East Washington East Peoria, IL 61611
More Info to come...Thanks, Bombers CC"
There ya go - it will be a cool show - I am gonna hit it the entire day/night this time.....last year I split my time between the Cheaters show in Milwaukee during the day then I drove to Peoria and hit that show that night. This year I hope the Cheaters wont beat me up - cause I am gonna hit the Bombs Away Bash all day long. The Bombers show doesn't start til 2pm and goes til 2 am so I think Aug 27 is going to be a FULL day for many hot rodders in the midwest!
Perhaps you can do what I did last year - hit the Cheaters show in the morn - then about 1pm take a trip down south and hit the Bombers show - it will go late fer sure!!!
And dont forget the Cordova Dragway Run Whatcha Brung Drag Fest! Aug 6!
