ROCKFORD (WREX) — The sounds of summer are back as 'Music In The Park' returns at Sinnissippi Park.

The weekly summer event kicked off Thursday night after having a year off due to the pandemic. Rockford musicians have been gathering to play for the community each summer in the music shell in 1970.

Organizers say this year feels extra special because of not being able to host it last year.

"A lot of people are very excited to get out in the outdoors," says Rockford Park District Director of Operations David Spencer.

"People are loving the music. They love to come back out and enjoy the music in the park. So we've seen a great turnout and expect a large turnout throughout the season.
