Eight very large murals are being painted on downtown Rockford buildings and bridges as part of CRE8IV, another beautiful addition to the Forest City.

The CRE8IV Mural Festival began on Wednesday (5/15) and runs until the meals are complete, which will be Sunday (5/19). There are celebrations with food, music and more at all 8 mural sites. Plus, this weekend is filled with other events in downtown Rockford, like the kickoff of City Market and the GR815 Beer Fest.

If you plan on attending the festival, which runs through Sunday (5/19), this map will help you navigate your way through the downtown Rockford mural sites.
