You know what I love most about this time of the year? The amount of family friendly fun that is at our disposal in the Rockford area.

Rockford City Market and Friday Night Flix will be officially kicking off their 2018 season in a couple weeks, many local farmers markets are already in full swing, and this Friday, May 11, the beginning of Edgebrook's Music On The Mall.

Local musicians will be playing every Friday night outside of Mary's Market at the Edgebrook Mall from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. This event is free to attend, and food and beverages from Mary's Market will be available for purchase. All you need to do is get the family ready for some fun, but don't forget to grab your chairs and dancing shoes!
