GO AWAY SNOW AND COLD!

We are sooooo ready for warmth and sunshine, heck we’ll even settle for drizzly dreary days. As long as they are warm!

Unfortunately it looks like another cold weekend in Northern Illinois. Get the kids out of the house before they riot!

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!
