A national tractor exhibition is considering having Peru host the event in the upcoming future.

Peru alderman Jim Lukosus said they are in preliminary discussion with those who run the event, which would last for the better part of a week and would either come up in 2022 or 2023.

Lukosus said it’d be another opportunity to bring people to Peru for a week.

The city is also starting a discussion about possibly taking farm land out of production and adding additional parking near the Illinois Valley Regional Airport. The extra space would improve parking for the TBM Avenger event, and Lukosus said hopefully by next year the city could start hosting concerts again.
