This is one "Rockford thing" we'll never tire from.

The sock monkey. As cute as it is iconic. I get Cheap Trick or Rockford Peaches fatigue once in a while around here but I'll take all the sock monkey content you have.

This Saturday at Midway Village is Sock Monkey Madness. You can make your own sock monkey or they can repair old ones. There will be sock monkeys from around the world as well as food and beverages. It's going to be a great time.

It's this Saturday, March 2 from 10 AM to 4 PM. Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for kids 3-17. It's still supposed to be cold this weekend so indoor activities are still at a premium.

Swing by, learn a little about Rockford's history with the iconic doll and maybe even take one home with you. A great little weekend.
