605 Magazine Celebrates 10 years

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.- January's issue of 605 Magazine marks 10 years of publishing events and happenings around South Dakota for The Mighty Bowtones, LLC.

"When we started this I was only 23 years old, and it's crazy to see how much we and the brand have evolved," said publisher Alana Snyder.

It has evolved from being distributed in Sioux Falls to now being available statewide, all the way throughout the Black Hills. 605 Magazine also is available on  605magazine.com and is a free app.

The magazine also just celebrated its best year ever, and has branched off as a brand with events like the 605 Summer Classic and 605 Black Hills Classic, as a podcast with the 605 Show, and recently launched 605 Creative Co., which specializes in video, photography, and design.

"We've really grown because of our readers," said Snyder. "Whether we realized it or not in the process, it's molded into what they want, and we're very grateful," she said.
