Staying home for the holiday? Then Rockford City Market will be open late for an event it’s calling ‘Rock the Market’ on Friday, July 1st.
Market hours will be extended to 3:30 – 10 p.m., and there will also be two musical acts to perform on the main stage under the pavilion throughout the night. Andrew Robinson plays from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and Pistol Pete plays from 7-10 p.m.
This will coincide with other downtown events and activities that night, including First Fridays where area shops, restaurants and attractions will be open later and have specials and events.
Downtown businesses will also be involved with Shop the Blocks where there will be sidewalk sales, alfresco dining and interactive “parklets.”
