  2. Chase down an ice cream truck like a kid again.
  3. Get your final sunburn of the season at Magic Waters.
  4. Eat another Woodfire Brick Oven Pizza and ear of Lulu's Roasted Corn at the Rockford City Market.
  5. Burn up some marshmallows at your backyard bonfire.
  6. Haul a bunch of food and gear to Rock Cut for a weekend of camping fun.
  7. Take a float on a tube down the Kishwaukee River.
  8. Make a mess out of yourself scarfing down barbecued deliciousness at Brews & BBQ at the Rockford Speedway.
  9. Knock back some frosty ones while dancing to awesome tunes from your childhood at Brews & BBQ.
  10. Devour cider donuts from Edwards Apple Orchard while weeping into your hot chocolate as you get ready to put your shorts away in preparation for Fall in the Stateline.


Whatever you choose to do this Labor Day weekend, please drive and play responsibly, and above all, have fun!
