What if we added a "theme" to Downtown Rockford for a weekend?

BMO Harris Bank Center in downtown Rockford is home of the Rockford IceHogs.

I have never seen a Harry Potter movie, and have no plans to. But if this is your thing and you want to experience something very unique, this is for you. On July 30 the streets of downtown Aurora, Illinois will be transformed and filled with Harry Potter mania.

Store fronts will change, the streets will be filled with people in costume, and this Aurora festival will take you back to the streets of London when a fella named Harry Potter started casting spells or whatever.

So this got me thinking, what if we could do this in downtown Rockford? What if we could add a fun and interactive theme to our beloved downtown. Here are a few of our ideas:

  • Double T - The movie "The Warriors" would be awesome.
  • Tina Fox - I think a Mad Max themed downtown Rockford would be so much fun.
  • Me - Anything WWE related would be great. Imagine at all the businesses downtown, if the employees dressed as Hulk Hogan.
