The City of Sioux Falls is launching an initiative to create safe fall and winter programming with the goal of engaging residents as well as attracting tourists, Mayor Paul TenHaken announced in a press release.
“Sioux Falls Alive” is a collaboration between the city and Experience Sioux Falls, alongside the Washington Pavilion and ASM Global, managers of the Denny Sanford Premier Center.
Washington Pavilion and the Premier Center will offer some of the events, the release said, while others will be held at Great Plains Zoo, Siouxland Libraries and Great Bear Ski Valley.
Other community organizations and businesses are also encouraged to submit their events, the release said, and more information will be made available next week.
The events will be collected at the Sioux Falls Alive website, which includes travel packages and hotel recommendations.
“As a community, we need to continue to move forward even as we follow safety measures to co-exist with the virus,” TenHaken said in the release. “A large part of that is caring not only for our physical health but also for our community’s emotional well-being. Through Sioux Falls Alive, we are bringing opportunities and engaging events to create a renewed state of vibrancy in our community, providing benefits both to our community’s mental and emotional health and supporting area businesses along the way.”
