Young and old alike, human and canine – all seemed to enjoy Rockford’s Trick-or-Treat on Main Street Halloween event last Saturday in downtown Rockford.
Area residents and guests were able to get out and trick-or-treat up and down U.S. Highway 231, collecting goodies from individuals, businesses, organizations, and churches as they went. From various candies to popcorn, area youth were able to get their fill of goodies for the holiday.
With Halloween now behind, the Town of Rockford is looking ahead to its other events for the remainder of the year.
The town will hold its Veterans Day Ceremony at 6 p.m. November 11 at the Event Center across from the Sheriff’s Office. Originally planned to be an outdoor event, the decision was made to move the ceremony indoors because of the cooler weather.
Tables will be spread out to help social distance, and veterans and their guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a hot meal at the Event Center that day.
Following the Veterans Day Ceremony, the town will then prepare for its Christmas Wonderland celebration, to be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. December 4. The town’s Christmas parade will follow the all-day event, with the parade kicking off at 6 p.m.
The Christmas Wonderland event in downtown Rockford will feature live music, vendors, carriage rides, coloring contest, face painting, food, an opportunity to meet Santa, and more.
