August 29 at Rockford City Market

It's Rock the Market this week at City Market! This means the market will feature two bands and it will be open later until 10pm. To celebrate, the market will also have the theme of "Luau Take 2!" (If you remember Luau Night last year and all the rain we got!) So meet me at the market to celebrate!!
