Twinkling and Shining

Thursday, December 21, 2017 3:00 PM by Elizabeth Miller

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is looking at all of the light displays throughout the city. I don't have to go far to see some spectacular displays...some of my neighbors REALLY get into the decorating spirit. But there are a few places I make sure I visit at least once before the holidays are done. If you have family in town and are looking for ways to "wow" them, it's guaranteed that a stop to one of these local light displays will be a shining success!

No Snow? No Problem!

Winter birthdays in the Midwest can be difficult. I should know...my birthday is in January. You can't have outdoor parties (unless you want to freeze) and you can't ask for fun pool toys or cute summer clothes because you won't use them for 6 months! There is one good thing about winter birthdays though...snow!

Around my birthday in particular, the Rockford region also gets to celebrate the annual Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition!
