ROCKFORD (WIFR) – Stroll on State is expected to be even bigger than last year.
More than 30,000 people participated in the inaugural Stroll on State last November and today, the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (RACVB) announced it will return.
The 2nd annual Stroll on State is set for Saturday, November 29th, from 4-9 p.m. in downtown Rockford.
This year, the event will take place on both sides of the Rock River, along East State Street. A highlight of the evening will be the community stroll along State from City Hall to the PNC Bank Plaza for the lighting of the Rockford Christmas Tree.
“Stroll on State is really an opportunity for the community to come together. Family and friends kicking off the holiday season and last year we were so thrilled to see how many people came out. Really overwhelmed by the positive response and so we’re going to do that again this year,” said RACVB President/CEO John Groh.
Additionally, live entertainment and music will greet visitors along State Street as well as an ice skating rink, Santaland, the brand new Frostyland, and there will even be s’mores stations.
Stroll on State is also in need of almost 500 volunteers to help decorate on November 21st and 22nd.
