Pink in the Rink Night - Rockford IceHogs

Monday, January 29, 2018 1:00 PM by Tyler Yomantas

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. 

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!

2017 4th of July Cheat Sheet

Tuesday, June 27, 2017 11:00 AM by Elizabeth Miller

Where did June go?? I blinked and all of a sudden, we're coming up to 4th of July festivities in the Rockford region! I won't complain...it's a fun holiday in the area! It's an easy holiday to love. Cookouts, parades, live music, being surrounded by friends and family...plus one of the only holidays where it's totally normal to wear a suit that looks like an American flag (yes, I know people that have worn this).

Classics and Chrome Car and Motorcycle Show

Monday, April 24, 2017 10:00 AM by Darrel Burnett

Back for its 15th year, I like to affectionately call the Classics and Chrome Motorcycle and Car Show the “100 Best in the Midwest.” This year, however, we will invite 140 of the top vehicles in the United States to the show. As with every show, we take great pride in never repeating the lineup, so I can assure our fans that they will see some of the most incredible vehicles in the United States under one roof.

No Snow? No Problem!

Thursday, January 12, 2017 3:00 PM by Elizabeth Miller

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!
