815 Day, also known as Rockford Day is just a few weeks away and these specials are getting us super excited to celebrate.

Some people outside of Rockford just don't understand how much we love our area code.

I say 'our' and I don't even have an 815 area code!

But I'm still part of the slew of Rockfordians who love the fun we have in this city surrounding 815 celebrations, especially on Rockford Day, August 15.

So we have just under six weeks before the Wednesday 'holiday' roll around and Rockford businesses are already announcing the specials they'll have on 815 Day.

According to Go Rockford, we've got a lot to look forward to!

  • Cookies by Design will offer one dozen mini glazed and sprinkled cookies fro $8.15 as well as one dozen mini gourmet cookies for $8.15 and four cupcakes for $8.15.
  • Crimson Ridge is offering Rockford Day 815 T-shirts for $8.15.
  • Discovery Center Museum will offer have price general admission with the code 815000 on August 15.
  • Klehm Arboretum and Botanic Garden is celebrating with Klehm t-shirts and Klehn caps.
  • Knit One Purl Two is giving us 15 percent off yarn all day.
  • Robin's Nest is giving us 15 percent off all purchases from August 15 through August 19.
  • Rockford Art Museum will have $5 admission for the whole family on Rockford Day.

And you know the list will continue to grow!

We don't want to skip the rest of July or anything, but we're very ready for August 15.
