Our Beautiful Forest City

Thursday, October 4, 2018 12:00 PM by Mary French

Forest City and Forest City Beautiful…Most likely you’ve heard these terms, but what do they mean? Both serve as great compliments to our beautiful city. Simply put, Forest City is a nickname that stems from the many trees and forests that beautify our region. In my opinion, one of the area’s finest attributes. After all, a beautiful city is one that residents are proud to call home. An initiative powering that pride is Forest City Beautiful.

The Rockford IceHogs have rediscovered their stride at just the right moment as they secured their spot in the 2017-18 Calder Cup playoffs along with the Chicago Wolves, Grand Rapids Griffins and Manitoba Moose. With wins in six straight games and points in 16 of the last 19 contests since Feb. 24, the Hogs have leapt Iowa in the standings to clinch a place in the playoffs.

Pink in the Rink Night - Rockford IceHogs

I have been to more Rockford IceHogs games in my life than I can recall. As a kid, I was brought along to these games on the weekends, often following my sister's hockey practice or games. So throughout the years, I have been on and off following the IceHogs and the Chicago Blackhawks. It wasn't until last season, and mostly this season, where I started paying a bit more attention to our local team. Attending multiple games this season, I can say this is a team worth watching. 

Go Go Rockford Go Guide

I've designed several booklets while I was in college. Although I was really proud of each of those projects, there's only so many people who actually get to see all of your hard work...a.k.a. professors, classmates, and parents. So being the graphic designer of the RACVB's brand new Rockford Region Go Guide is a big deal for me because not only will my coworkers (and parents) see it, but hopefully so will the rest of the Rockford region and beyond!

Twinkling and Shining

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!
