Organizations team up to host Hydrant Block Parties in Sioux Falls

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Sioux Falls Fire Rescue and Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation are coming together to host six Hydrant Block Parties throughout the summer.

The first one was held Thursday at Bakker Park. No registration is required for the events.

Families are able to have some fun in the water and play games using neighborhood water hydrants. Kids get sprayed by Sioux Falls Fire Rescue hoses and can even try using one of the hoses themselves.
