Get the Most Out of Your Halloween Costume

Monday, October 15, 2018 10:00 AM by Elizabeth Miller

Halloween is the one night a year where kids (and even adults!) can dress up to be anything they way to be. I fondly remember my Halloween costumes as a kid including Snow White, Princess Jasmine, and a '50s girl in a poodle skirt. Usually after Halloween, our costumes would end up in my parents' basement closet, ready for whenever my sisters and I wanted to play dress up. But what if I told you that kids in the Rockford region can wear their costumes for more events than just Halloween?

Father's Day the Rockford Way

Wednesday, June 13, 2018 2:00 PM by Elizabeth Miller

Father’s Day is right around the corner and it’s time to celebrate dads! My dad has done a lot for me growing up…everything from helping me figure out what’s wrong with an appliance, squishing spiders when I’m too scared (even to this day!) and teaching me how to do things like drive a car (or motorcycle…thanks Dad!).

Wednesday, May 9, 2018 3:00 PM by Elizabeth Miller

It’s been one year since the RACVB team took our love for Beefaroo and created the Tour de Roo! That’s right. We mapped out all of the Beefaroo locations in the Rockford region and planned to visit all of them in one day. It’s crazy, I know…but we did it! In honor of its one-year anniversary, I’m going to give you the lowdown on what visiting all 7 Beefaroo locations in one day is like. (Spoiler alert: it’s epic.)

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.

The Last Stretch of Winter

Monday, February 26, 2018 2:00 PM by Elizabeth Miller

The sun is out, the weather is warm, and spring is on the horizon! This happens every year, though. We have a couple days where the temperature is above 50 degrees, and we think "spring is here!"...but then it's back to 30 degrees and winter. But fear not! The Rockford region offers plenty of helpful ways to get you through this last bit of winter.
