If you are looking for the perfect excuse to be outdoors enjoying some of the best Fall weather and activities the Rockford area has to offer, Lockwood Park needs you this October!

Lockwood Park's Pumpkin Fest kicks off October 7 and will continue Saturdays and Sundays (plus Columbus Day, Monday October 9) through the month of October at the park's location at 5201 Safford Rd. in Rockford.

If you have extra time on your hands, or know of some student groups in need of volunteer opportunities, this is perfect for you.

I'm guessing spots will fill up fast, so you better fill out your volunteer application now here.
