Remember last year when we were all jonesing for fair food and carnival rides? I never knew how much I needed funnel cakes in my life until I was told I couldn't go get one, but thankfully, we won't have to experience that loss again this summer.

Since most local fairs and festivals are a go this year, I think it is our obligation to attend and enjoy them more than we ever have before. So, let's continue the carnival fun this weekend at the Rockford Speedway!

Starting this Thursday, June 3, at 5 p.m. through Sunday, June 6 at 9 p.m., a carnival will be taking over the Rockford Speedway grounds for your family's riding, eating and gaming enjoyment.

The Rockford Speedway Fair will feature;

  • Rides
  • Games
  • Fair Food
  • admission!

I have two young daughters at home who LOVE going on rides, so I know it's very likely that a parent will go broke within the first ten minutes of arriving at any carnival. Well, the good news for our wallets is; unlimited ride wristbands will be available at The Rockford Speedway Fair! In fact, you can save $7 per unlimited ride wristbands (good for the day of the choice) when you buy them in advance by clicking here.

I just took a look at the extended forecast, and it looks like the weekend will feature plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid to upper 80's. Sounds like a dandy weekend to enjoy some summer fun, don't ya think?

FYI, there will still be racing action at the Rockford Speedway this weekend, so you might as well snag some of those tickets too at
