First Friday in Downtown Sioux Falls

It’s the new year’s first First Friday in downtown Sioux Falls today. That means there are all kinds of deals and specials happening at businesses in the downtown area.

The biggest event right now is the 9th Annual Downtown Burger Battle. Twenty-seven restaurants put their spin on the classic burger. You can eat and vote on all of them throughout the month.
