Annual Sioux Falls Light Show Fades to Black
The board of directors of the Wells Fargo Falls Park Sound and Light Show pulled the plug last winter and have decided not to resurrect the annual tradition.
May 24 was to have marked the beginning of the show’s 14th year, but board president Deanna Larson told the City Council that the show “had run its course.”
Larson tells the Argus Leader that the conversation to end the show has been going on for years. One reason is a drop in attendance. The number of people coming to the lighted musical history of Sioux Falls had slid from about 80,000 to less than 35,000 over the past few years.
