June 14, 2013

The Rockford Start of Summer three day event from June 14-16, 2013 is in its 45thyear with another fun-filled event that features plenty of chills and thrills for the entire family. The City of Rockford has been preparing the streets, bridges, and sidewalks for the big event, so it will be the perfect backdrop for this wonderful weekend.

Start of Summer Celebration will feature carnival rides, food, crafts, music, entertainment and family fun and fireworks will light up the Rockford skyline at dusk on Saturday.

New additions in 2013 are an outdoor movie at dusk on Friday night at Garden Club Park, the Meijer Funmobile, which will be in the old Northland Parking Lot on Friday, and tethered hot air balloon rides from RE/MAX United on Saturday behind Parkside Elementary.

There will be a free shuttle service available. There is a pick up and drop off every half-hour from Family Fare Supermarket, MVP Plaza and Rockford Center from 5-11 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday

This year the event is scheduled for Friday – Sunday, June 14, 15 and 16.
