We are just a little over two weeks away from Stroll on State and this news has got us SUPER excited.

Stroll on State is one of the greatest recent Rockford traditions.

Watching the entire city come together to kick off the holidays is fantastic and things are getting even bigger this year with the expansion of the Merry & Bright Parade.

The Stroll Parade used to just be Santa and a few horses, but no way, not anymore. This year, it's gonna be huge.

The parade starts at 3 p.m. near the Rockford Public Library and will be packed with fun holiday floats, music, Santa and so much more.

You're gonna want to get a spot on the route as soon as you can!

Everything Stroll can be found on the Stroll on State website, we'll see you there!
