Fall just began and so did preparations for Rockford's premier Winter event. See what is already happening to prepare for this wonderful Christmas celebration.

Just watching this video of Stroll On State 2017, has my skin covered in goosebumps. I'm all about Christmas and I love this event.

What does it take to make this event so amazing? Lots of amazing volunteers, who like me, are also all about Christmas. Stroll On State volunteers have begun the many hours of behind the scenes work to make downtown Rockford one of the most beautiful holiday events in the entire state. The year's event takes place on Saturday, November 24, that's just two months away. If you've ever wondered what it takes to put over 82,000 people in the holiday mood, take a look.


Last year's Stroll On State was the warmest one on record, will we be lucky to see the 50s again this year, I sure hope so. According to Stroll On State By The Numbers, 1,883 volunteers helped with 2017's event, and 2018 Stroll needs more. Please visit the Stroll On State volunteer page if you're interested in helping out.
