Lighting Ceremony – Friday, Dec. 4th, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm.
Peppler Park on the Dam Overlook
NEW: Free carriage rides (at the Rotary Pavilion), sponsored by StoryPoint!
If you haven’t attended this event, you should make sure to mark your calendar. The crowd gathers at Peppler Park (at the dam overlook) and are entertained – and amazed – by the talented choirs of Rockford High School. Director Mandy Scott selects some holiday gems for the choirs to sing.
A Rockford City representative will be addressing the crowd with a Message of Peace.
And then comes the beauty of sitting in complete darkness and counting down from 10 to turn on the beautiful holiday lights!
The City’s DPW staff will be as busy as Santa’s elves as they prepare the City for the event. They will be stringing thousands and thousands of little white lights on every tree, shrub, and pole in Downtown Rockford. It is always fun to listen to the crowd count down from 10 to ignite the lights all over downtown – it truly is gorgeous.
If you have time on Friday, Dec. 4th at 5:30 p.m. come on down to the dam and check out the light show! We want you to share this special occasion with the Chamber – it is a very special event as we count down to this very special holiday.
