We're all fired up around here for the Rockford Town Fair, presented by SwedishAmerican, a division of UW Health. It starts today and runs through Sunday at Rockford Speedway, 9572 Forest Hills Road, in Loves Park. However, we're divided on what we love the most about the Town Fair. Some of us can't wait for the food, while others are grooving on the rides. If you're in the food camp, take a look at Rob's post on the culinary delights that await you. If a good time for you entails adrenaline-pumping rides, high-flying rides, or even the calmer ones, we've got you covered at the Rockford Town Fair.
