The holidays are right around the corner and so is the Fifth Annual Stroll on State event
in Rockford, IL. Stroll on State is traditionally held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which means this year’s festivities will be on November 25 from 2 p.m. – 9 p.m. The event will kick off with the Stroll on State holiday parade, commencing at 3 p.m. from the Rockford Public Library on Wyman Street. The parade will then travel south to State Street, cross the bridge, and end at 3rd Street.
Children can enjoy creating holiday crafts and writing letters to Santa. After a wagon ride or ice skating, you can warm up by the Fire & Ice display. There will be live entertainment on three different stages by local artists as well as carolers, drummers and dance performances. Be sure to be at the Merry & Bright stage in time for the Christmas tree lighting and fireworks display. There will be various vendors offering food, beverages, and other items for purchase. There is truly something for everyone as you go for a Stroll on State.
