Unfortunately, we have to bid farewell to Bella Luna Bakery's physical storefront. The good news is these wonderful ladies will still be baking and fulfilling special orders. They're going back to their roots. You may see them around town at markets, and you can always give them a call to place an order - ESPECIALLY for the holidays coming up!


These ladies have supported Rockford Buzz from the beginning, and we want them to feel our support as well. Give this video a share, and if you're looking for some delicious baked goods - make sure you give them a call (815-670-7028).

A Spook-tacular Week at Anderson Japanese Gardens!

This coming week is a fun one. We have a week-long lead up to Halloween! Now, Halloween may look a bit different this year due to COVID-19, but that doesn't mean all of the fun has to be lost. You know what's cool about this holiday? You get to dress up in costumes, and you can add as many layers as you want to them to make them warm so going outside is enjoyable. And, being outside is a great way to spend your time while being COVID-conscious. I say all of that to bring you this awesome bit of news. This week at Anderson Japanese Gardens, all children who come dressed up in their Halloween costumes receive FREE admission to the Gardens along with a pre-packaged bag of treats during regular garden hours!From Monday, October 26 - Friday, October 30, bring out your spooky children and enjoy the beautiful fall-scapes of Anderson Japanese Gardens. You'll be outdoors, there's plenty of room to stay distanced from others while enjoying nature and the awesome fall colors!Enjoy nature. Enjoy family time.

Día de los Muertos Celebration at Nicholas Conservatory

Rockford Park District’s Nicholas Conservatory invites the community to a celebration of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in the tropical Conservatory. This year’s event, part of the Nicholas at Night series of family friendly events, will be a smaller more intimate version, and will be held Saturday, November 7, 2020, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. Advance registration is required by noon on Friday, November 6, 2020, at https://nicholasconservatory.com/nicholas-at-night for this year’s event.The Conservatory will be decked out for the occasion with marigolds, papel picado, and its large La Catrina figure, the holiday’s most recognizable image. The holiday originated in Mexico several thousand years ago to demonstrate remembrance, love, and respect for deceased family members and loved ones in colorful and festive ways, and is rich in symbolism. Attendees will experience the holiday through stories, art, and more.All activities are included with event fees. Due to limited capacity, new rates apply for Nicholas at Night events; rates vary by residency, age, and NCG membership status, and are posted at https://nicholasconservatory.com/nicholas-at-night.Safety has been and will continue to be a top priority for the Rockford Park District.
