ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- For many of us, the last thing we need this time of year is a cold treat. But some people at the Discovery Center feel that any time is the perfect time of year for a chocolate sundae.
Visitors today could, not only come out and make their own sundae, but also get to know some of Rockford’s very own IceHogs.
The fun didn't stop there. Kids joined in on a chocolate trivia challenge, a contest for the best sundae topping, and they could also design their own valentine. East High School's jazz band provided live entertainment.
"They can explore, they can create, they can discover new things, and parents really can too. So we enjoy getting everyone together - getting the different generations together - you'll see the grandparents here, the parents, the grandchildren - and everybody just having fun together,” said Discovery Center Marketing Director Anne Marie Walker.
Saturday, February 14 is Discovery Center night at the IceHogs game. They'll be doing live science demonstrations, and a friend of Thomas the Tank Engine will be visiting.
Every ticket sold will be $5 back to the museum.
