The City of Belleville held their 200th anniversary 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.  Here, Air Force Lt. Wilson Wise conducts the USAF Mid-America Band, which played a variety of music, including popular patriotic tunes.
