You will recognize the clown from anywhere—red haired, a nose to rival Rudolph’s, and a cute mid-century purple hat to complete the look. But it’s not what’s on the outside sign at Emo’s, it’s what’s inside the famous service windows…. Located at the corner of War Memorial and Prospect, this seasonal walk-up window ice cream and hot dog stand has been a community staple for over 50 years. Ask any local what they order from Emo’s and you’ll get a variety of answers—from banana splits to chili dogs to soft serve atop a generous mound of sprinkles—rest assured, a true Peorian will have a go-to favorite.
