Some fun things you can do to celebrate National Hammock Day in Rockford.

Saturday, July 22nd is National Hammock Day.

First of all, if you don't have your own hammock. I suggest going out and purchasing one. It is definitely worth the investment.

I got a hammock for a Father's Day present a couple of years ago. It's one of the best gifts I've ever received. I use it all the time. It's like a couch for outside.

Don't worry if you don't have two trees to hang it between. They also sell stands to hold up your hammock. That's what I have and it works great.

It's very important to make sure you place it in a shady location. You don't want to get over heated.

I was talking to Captain Jack and he owns a hammock and enjoys using it too.

If you are new to the hammock world, here are some fun things you can do while laying in a hammock.

  • Relax
  • Read
  • Drink
  • Eat
  • Nap
  • Text
  • Tan
  • Cuddle
  • Watch TV
  • Listen to music
  • Play video games
  • Talk on the phone

As you can see, hammocks are multi-functional.

Do yourself a favor and go get one. That way you can actively participate in National Hammock Day. It will put a smile on your face.
