It’s Easter weekend and most people have the next 3 days off, making it the perfect time to get out with the family and do something fun!

We already have a post with all the awesome Easter events happening in the 815, so we made a point to exclude them from this list. Be sure to check out the Ultimate Easter Events post if that’s what you’re looking for!

For those that don’t celebrate the holiday or just want to do something non-Eastery this weekend here are this weekend’s picks for fun things to do with the kids in Rockford!

Remember, some events require registration and always check with the hosting organization for the most up to date information before heading out.

If you would like to add your event to this list or work with Rockford4Kids to be a Featured Event, let us know!
