Family fun headed for Bushnell this weekend


Calling all jeep enthusiasts! If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, you may want to drive a little northeast of Macomb.

Jeep Blitz by Steinjäger is taking place in Bushnell this weekend. The three-day event will begin on Friday, April 15 in the evening and end on Sunday, April 17 in the afternoon.

There will be a variety of raffle prizes at Jeep Blitz. All proceeds will go toward the Greater Peoria Honor Flight, which is the designated charity for this year’s event. The organization provides free trips to Washington D.C. for American veterans. The trips include a flight to and from D.C., and allow the veterans to see World War II Memorial. The veterans do not pay anything for the trip.

Activities are family friendly and include a mud pit, test track rides, and a bounce house. Pre-registration is suggested and can be done on the Jeep Blitz website. For more information about event times and location, click here.
