Don’t miss the used book (and more) sale at Krause Memorial Library on Saturday, October 3, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. During the last hour, items are a buck a bag.
Other events happen througout the day. Animals on the Go are back at Garden Club Park Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 6 p.m., and hayrides throughout the day are free and fun with really big horses.
Rockford merchants work hard to make the festival a special treat. Each year Start of Summer dazzles with bling and rides, but Harvest Fest is designed to bring back that old-fashioned hometown feel for which Rockford is so well suited.
Take the time to visit in some of our local shops, where you are likely to meet the owner, who will chat and ring up your sale. Try to find service and experience like that in a big-box store.
