Ways to celebrate the first official day of summer this Wednesday in Rockford.

I can't believe it's already here. The first official day of summer is this Wednesday. Since I'm always looking for a reason to have a good time.

Here are things to do in Rockford to celebrate the first day of summer.

  • Swimming - There's nothing better than being in a pool on a hot summer day. If you don't have your own, there are plenty of public pools in the Rockford area.
  • Spray Pad - If you don't have a sprinkler to run through, this is even better. They are located in parks throughout Rockford.
  • Water Balloons - Always a special summer treat. An old fashion water balloon fight is so much fun.
  • Slip 'N Slide - I don't care if you'r an adult or kid, it will make you smile.
  • Water Gun Fights - They are so much better now with the invention of the super soaker. Old squirt guns were so hard to fill.
  • Wakeboarding - Something for people who want more adventure.
  • Beach - Hitting the beach will help keep you cool.
