During the month of October, I feel it is my duty to provide info on as many awesome Halloween experiences as I can find. Whether this fun is for adults only, or events the whole family can enjoy together, Rockford has a TON of stuff to choose from, coming up over the next few weeks!

From Halloween pub crawls and haunted houses, to haunted tours and trunk-or-treats, the Rockford area has them all, and so much more to offer.

In fact, the Rockford Park District just announced the return of their Boo Bash Weekend at Carlson Ice Arena and Sapora Playworld, and I know this is something your kids will absolutely love!
