Some area musicians also received a heartfelt homecoming Wednesday night.

Dozens of family members crowded the airport to welcome back the ELITE youth drummers.

They returned from their trip to Friedrichshafen, where they learned about German food, customs, and music.

"The drumming that we do is different than what they're usually used to. It was new for them, so they just treated us like we were famous. It was great to experience that," said drummer Tevin Keeton.

You can see them perform on Monday starting at 7:30 pm on the Peoria Riverfront.

Methodist's Red, White and Boom sky show will follow at 9:30.
