PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

A sure sign of Spring: the Central Illinois Auto Show, taking place at the Peoria Civic Center. 

The 29th annual event gets underway at noon Friday and runs through the weekend.  Attendees will see over 300 vehicles from 33 dealers and 30 manufacturers.  

Peoria Metro New Car Dealer's Association President Sam Bertschi says the show is important for the dealers and the economy.

"A lot of our customers, they want to wait until after the auto show to make their purchase decision, because they like to come and see everything under one roof," he explained. "And then they - right after the auto show, a very busy time for the local dealers."

Admission is $5 for guests 16 and over. 

Kids under 16 get in free with a paid adult.
