What's more Rockford than making your own Sock Monkey at the Sock Monkey Madness Festival?

It's one of the biggest symbols of Rockford, besides the actual Symbol in Sinnissippi Park, it's the Sock Monkey!

On March 5th and 6th, if you visit the Midway Village Museum you will be able to take part in Make-a-Monkey Workshops where you can create your own Sock Monkey, according to WTVO.

Workshops are at the museum all day Saturday and Sunday until 5 p.m.

Each Sock Monkey Kit will cost $20 and you can create it with the help from staff.

I think this is just so awesome. What a fantastic way to teach your children about the importance the Sock Monkey has in local Rockford history.
