HOLIDAY SOUNDS—The Rockford High School chamber singers will perform during Rockford’s Holiday Lighting Ceremony on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 6:00 p.m. in Peppler Park.

It’s time to kick off the holiday shopping season downtown Rockford, and there is no better way than to turn on the holiday lights. Rockford’s fourth annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony will be held Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 6:00 p.m. in Peppler Park. Rockford High School’s brass ensemble, along with over 235 members of the Rockford High School choirs, will kick off the event with holiday music. Messages of peace will be presented by Rockford’s Mayor Chi Chi Rogers and Mayor Pro-Tem Steve Jazwiec. Gene Parker, of 100.5 The River, will lead friends and family in the traditional lighting countdown as Mike Bouwkamp and his family prepare to illuminate the town.

This year we are very fortunate to have Aria Show Technology & Service provide the sound and lighting so everyone can hear the festivities above the roar of the water.

So come and warm up your voices and join in great holiday fun. Then, after the lighting ceremony, stroll the streets, enjoy the holiday decorations, listen to the Dickens Carolers, and prepare to visit the businesses all dressed up in their holiday finest.

The City of Rockford and the Rockford Chamber of Commerce wish you a magical holiday season.
