We've talked before about how often we've heard someone say "There's just nothing to do in Rockford," and how the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (RACVB) is hard at work to put that expression out to pasture.

Our friend Andrea, from the RACVB, pays a visit to the WROK Morning Show every Friday to give us a look ahead to all the fun things there are to see, do, and enjoy every weekend. Today's visit was no exception, as Andrea got us a bunch of details about next Saturday's Stroll on State in addition to other events this weekend.

We also talked about the ongoing effort to promote the Rockford area to people who've never even considered visiting us here. Part of that effort involves a new video presentation on Rockford called "Rockford Illinois--In Good Company."
