Peoria’s Pride event changes name, announces location

PEORIA — Peoria’s inaugural Pride celebration is now known as the River City Pride Festival. The event had previously been called Whiskey City Pride as a nod to Peoria’s history. The announcement was made in a Facebook post. River City Pride said that the old name might deter families from participating and make others feel welcome. With the help of Lettering Works, they have rebranded as River City Pride.
