The holiday season has always meant family time to me, and thankfully, gathering with all your loved ones for the holidays isn't be frowned upon this year as much as it was last year.

Many holiday events in the Rockford area may have social distancing protocol in effect again in 2021, but at least they are happening! I believe it is the duty of Stateliner to soak up as much Christmas fun as possible this year, and here's one more thing I think you need to add to your family's holiday fun to-do list for 2021.

Take a Holiday Wagon Ride at Lockwood Park in Rockford

In the 2020 holiday season, Lockwood Park hosted a beautiful luminaria walk-thru that my family thoroughly enjoyed going to, and although I'm not sure if that will happen again in 2021, I can tell you Lockwood Park is a beautiful place to visit at Christmastime. I mean, where else can you take a pic with Santa and his pet calf?
