Ross, Scott, and Abby are coming to you this month from Downtown Rockford to encourage you to enjoy local shopping, entertainment, and ideas for VALENTINE'S DAY. There are plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy this new year.

RORA was created for everyone to come and enjoy the outdoors but sill stay COVID safe. Downtown Rockford has guidelines set in place to allow local restaurants to offer food and beverages. You are able to purchase food and drinks from your favorite spot, then head outside to the designated areas to enjoy.
