As Rockford’s own Fred VanVleet and the Toranto Raptors won the NBA championship, Rockford fans watched from Jurassic Park RKFD, which for the evening was located at East State and Water Streets. RACVB, the Rockford Area and Convention Visitors Bureau coordinated the Watch Party, which had two giant screens to watch games 5 and 6. Vendors were also available.
