Hundreds of people, many without masks, turned up for the 10th annual “White Trash Bash” in Illinois over the weekend — despite authorities warning that Coronavirus cases are on the rise in the area. At least 200 boats filled with revelers packed the Illinois River in East Peoria on Saturday for the all-day bash that consists of drinking and socializing in large groups. None of the around 500 partygoers were seen wearing masks or practicing social distancing. Authorities had issued a warning ahead of the blowout, reminding folks that “Covid 19 numbers are increasing in our area.” “This event has the potential to expose everyone to the virus,” the Fon du Lac Park District Police Department wrote on Facebook.

Twitter users were tickled by the news of the felt feline. “What. A. Headline: “Panther on the loose clinging to a park bench turned out to be a stuffed toy,” one wrote. “Possible Panther Prowls Park,” another wrote with the hashtag “Friday Funny.” Sussex Police were initially concerned when they first sighted the big cat in their car headlights, seemingly attempting to jump over the bench. “Reports of a large apex predator in the Steyning area turned out to be true,” the police said. “It may be a stuffed toy, but the attending officers didn’t necessarily know that at first.” (

According to the department’s Facebook page, the fire started after a fragrant candle that was burning in the car, tipped over onto some papers, and caught on fire.
