Christmas decorations are going up everywhere, including the Auburn corridor.
The West Side Business District was out putting up decorations this afternoon. The group received a grant from the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois.
A large tree will be going up next to the Driver's License Facility parking lot.
"We have decided that we would have a scene that would provide for the community some festive feel for our neighborhood here on the west side of Rockford," says Jeremiah Demus of the West Side Business Association.
A tree lighting ceremony will be held at 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Dec. 4. Everyone is welcome.
