First Friday will be kicking off this Friday, November 1st. First Friday is a day of shopping and entertainment that occurs downtown on the first Friday of each month. Many of the shops stay open later so you can do more shopping and enjoy the culture and scenery of downtown Sioux Falls. In addition to the shops, you can visit a variety of artist venues and restaurants. The theme for this First Friday is "Downtown Gives."
Downtown Sioux Falls and other retailers will be taking part in the Downtown Gives charity program. This is a collaborative effort of business owners downtown to give back to local charities. Coupon books will be sold at participating retailers. Funds raised will benefit The Good Shepherd Center. The coupon books will go on sale Friday, November 1st, and stay on sale through the holiday season.
Downtown Sioux Falls is also giving away a $250 shopping spree! Registration forms can be found in each coupon book. Registration deadline for the shopping spree is Monday, December 16th.
