PEORIA -- It will be a two-day, multi-county festival surrounding one Central Illinois staple; Asian carp. Organizers hope the 2014 Flying Fish Festival and Bow Fishing Tournament will bring out the best bow fishermen in the area to make a dent in the fish population.

It's an organization dedicated to conserving the environment. The festival takes place in July. Later in the day, local chefs will prepare the fish in different ways for people to try. Registration for the tournament opens March 1.
