Dine out for each meal with a different friend - Pack the pasties and coffee for that sunrise breakfast. Lunch downtown at one of the many restaurant patios. Then, invite that one person whom you haven't connected with for the longest time to your favorite place.

Mow the lawn - And, while you're at it mow one of your neighbors. It's always good to have some neighbor points in the plus column.

Watch the sunset - Put a lid on it! Sun goes down at 9:11 PM. You've had a full day so sit back and relax. Rather stand up, clap, kiss the one next to you, make a toast, and Bless This Day.

It was a good day, for the longest day of the year.

Here Are The 7 Remaining Drive-In Theaters In South Dakota

If you were born last century...you know, in the nineteen hundreds (ugh)...you may have spent a summer evening in the car watching movies. I don't mean on your phone, I mean at the drive-in movie theater!

If you were in Sioux Falls in the 1970s and '80's you may remember seeing Jaws and Indiana Jones at The East Park or the Starlite Drive-In. Both drive-ins opened just after World War 2. The East Park didn't make it out of the '70s, closing in 1978. The Starlite survived long enough to see the birth of home video, closing in 1985.


Drive-in movies had a bit of a resurgence during the pandemic. They were a way to go out and do something social without getting out of your car.

If you tried one during that time, or you remember the fun of a warm summer evening watching movies on that giant screen there are still places in South Dakota and around Sioux Falls you can do it.
