Things are heating up in the Forest City which means more and more of us will be spending time on the Rock River.

No boat? No problem. There's plenty of fun and free things to do that don't require a boat; well...at least not your own. This summer, take a wild ride with Rockford's very own Ski Broncs.

To celebrate their 50th year in Rockford this year, we've put together a list of the 10 things you didn't know about the Ski Broncs Ski Team.

Wait, there's more.

The Ski Broncs have a show on the 4th of July with front row seating to the Country Clubs fireworks display, they'll be hosting regional finals on July 8-9 and nationals on August 11-13.

Grab your sunblock and suits; the Ski Broncs perform every Wednesday and Friday night at Shorewood Park starting at 7 p.m. and the shows are FREE.
