One of the biggest fireworks shows in the state of South Dakota is back at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds for 2021. This year’s event is being hosted by a brand new non-profit “Sioux Falls Fireworks & Community Events”, started by John & Heidi Small, the owners of Sunny 93.3 in Sioux Falls, and by Matt Paulson, the owner of MarketBeat.
Last year when the Sioux Falls Jaycees canceled their annual fireworks event due to COVID, Sunny Radio decided to keep the fireworks event alive in 2020 with the help of many generous local sponsors. “MarketBeat, CarSwap and Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort were all involved last year and we’re excited to have them sponsoring the event with Sunny Radio in 2021″ said John Small. “We’re also excited to be back at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds, and we would love to have people join us in person, but you can watch the fireworks from your vehicle while parked anywhere in northwest Sioux Falls, and hear the patriotic musical soundtrack on Sunny 93.3fm.”
This year a local company, The Fireworkz Store will shoot the fireworks, set to a patriotic music soundtrack at 10pm, but the event itself will start at 7pm with music and fun, the Sioux Falls Municipal Band plays at 8pm and the POET Ethanol Powered Vanguard Flyover is at at 9pm.
You’re encouraged to get involved through the “Giving Back” program at Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort. You can donate $10 to the fireworks fund and they will give you $10 in free play in the casino. (details available at their Resort Club)
