After some worrisome weather on Friday, June 11, the rest of Rockford’s Start of Summer Celebration took place under perfect sunny conditions. This year’s festivities included a giant cake in honor of the City’s 75th anniversary. It was made by Rockford Police Officer Jason Bradley’s mother, Denise. The cake was unveiled while the Scottville Clown Band performed in the Lions’ beverage tent on Saturday. If you missed the weekend fun, or couldn’t make it to every event, here are a few snapshots of Rockford’s 42nd annual Start of Summer Celebration.
