Family Fun in Rockford, Illinois

As a parent of two young kids, I know finding new, fun things to do as a family isn't always easy, especially if you have a tight family budget.

As Rockford area residents, we are all blessed to have a wealth of family-friendly entertainment at our fingertips like the Discovery Center Museum and the Burpee Museum of Natural History, but what do you do if the kids don't want to go there again?

Take them there anyway because you know they will have a great time? Sure, that could work, OR you could take advantage of FREE family fun when it's available to spice things up.

Free Family-Friendly Show Coming to the Coronado
