On Thursday night, the Falls will be lit up bright in memory of a young girl who lost her battle with cancer.
Payton Hand would've turned 13 years old on Thursday, but she lost her battle to cancer and now on her birthday the city of Sioux Falls will light up the Falls gold.
The Falls will turn gold from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Mayor Mike Huether will join the event at 6:30 p.m.
The state of South Dakota has also proclaimed this month as Childhood Cancer Awareness month. So, everyone is challenged to be bold and wear gold on Thursday.
Thursday’s event is free and open to the public.
