Cheap Trick Day no joke in Rockford

Posted: Updated:

Ever since 2008, April 1st has had a little extra meaning for people in the Rockford area, and music fans around the world.  That's because April Fool's Day is also Cheap Trick Day in Illinois. 

Rockford's Burpee Museum held a special Cheap Trick Day Celebration.  The Burpee is home to "Rick's Picks", an exhibit dedicated to Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen, and his "stuff".

If you haven't seen it yet, time is running out.  Although you've got a few extra days - and that's no joke.  The "Rick's Picks" exhibit's been extended until April 14th.
