This Friday there will be a bin available at the information booth next to the Pepsi tent on the east side of the pavilion where they will be collecting CD’s for the “Off the Chain Link!” Public Art Project led by the Rockford Area Arts Council.

Only CD’s are requested; please leave the cases in your recycling bin at home.
