ROCKFORD — Snømarket, an annual outdoor winter tradition on the city’s North End, kicked off Friday night as a dusting of snow flurries created a picture-perfect atmosphere.
The three-day festival is held in the parking lot behind The Norwegian, 1402 N. Main St., in Rockford.
You can get specialty hot cocoa with a torch-toasted marshmallow, akvavit in ice cube shot glasses, hot cider and glögg, which is a Swedish infused wine.
