The City of Belleville held their 200th anniversary fireworks celebration on Saturday with live music, a laser show, and a fireworks show at Southwestern Illinois College. Thousands of people witnessed the fireworks display - either from a spot on the SWIC campus, or from vantage points at adjacent business parking lots. Many people even parked on the side of Illinois 161 and other nearby streets.
