Alligator Sighting at RB&W Park


Summer starts off right with our highly anticipated Summer Splash event in Rock Falls. Our mission is to bring people family and friends together to celebrate the best our community has to offer. The Rock Falls Chamber is excited to announce that Summer Splash will be held at the RB&W Riverfront on June 21st – 22nd.

This beloved annual hometown event features wild, fun, and free activities for all ages. Bring the whole family down to enjoy over one hundred organizations partnering together to participate as entertainers, event hosts, booth spaces, activity organizers, or volunteers. Back by popular demand: Alligator Brats! Brother Daryls will be serving up fresh and hot alligator brats both days of the event.

“We are beyond excited to bring our community together again for this huge summer celebration,” says Sam Smith, President/CEO. “Summer Splash is truly amazing with the number of businesses, organizations, volunteers, and community members uniting for free fun on the Riverfront. This spectacular event is open to everyone and provides quality family entertainment with no admission fee. It is all about giving back to the community and uniting us. Together, we will always achieve more.”
