What You Need To Know About February First Friday and Weekend Festivities
If someone asks you if there is anything going on in Sioux Falls heading into the weekend, I want you to give them such a look, and then, point them to downtown Sioux Falls. February First Friday is this Friday (February 7) and there is a very long list of "stuff" to do!
First of all, the Sioux Falls Winter Carnival continues at locations in and around the city. The pop-up skating rink at 8th & Railroad is open Friday from 4 to 8 PM, Saturday from 10 AM to 8 PM and Sunday, noon to 8 PM.
