THE SIOUX FALLS FIREWORKS ARE ON FOR 2020! (We're shooting FROM Elmwood Golf Course) We'll have the POET Ethanol Powered Flyover at 9pm... the fireworks will happen shortly after 10:15pm (after the final flight in that evening)

The Sioux Falls Jaycees hosted the fireworks at the WH Lyons Fairgrounds for 53 years. When that event was canceled for 2020, due to COVID-19 concerns, a small group of local businesses spent the last few weeks working together to KEEP the Sioux Falls Fireworks show for 2020.

Sunny 93.3 and FOX 7 present the Sioux Falls Fireworks, sponsored by Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort and MarketBeat. Lew's Fireworks, the same company who's done the Sioux Falls fireworks show for many years, will shoot the fireworks from Elmwood Golf Course. You're encouraged to watch the fireworks from your vehicle while parked anywhere in northwest Sioux Falls, then listen to the patriotic musical soundtrack on Sunny 93.3fm. This is something that was added several years ago, but this year it's replacing the “in person” event completely.

Several “approved parking areas” have already been secured. (list is below on this page)

This event could not happen without the local businesses who stepped up to support it. Many who feel this event is needed now more than ever.

Sunny 93.3, FOX 7, Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort, MarketBeat, Noteboom RV, Car Swap, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Right At Home In Home Care & Assistance, Giving Hope Bingo, Foley's Heating & AC, Smithfield Foods, Xcel Energy, Outsound Productions, POET Ethanol, West Sioux Glass, Roll-N-Smoke, Track 2 Trail Arctic Cat, Elmwood Golf Course, JJ's Wine & Spirits and Big Paws Canine.

There are many additional businesses and local residents who are also pitching in to make this a success. If you'd like to contribute to the fireworks, you can do that a few ways. One way anyone can get involved is 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 the Resort Club at Grand Falls Casino)

You can also stop by JJ's Wine & Spirits to make a donation at their bar and on the counter in their liquor department. THEY'RE ALSO MATCHING THESE FUNDS!
Special thank you to Giving Hope Bingo (formerly Burnside Bingo) for giving the proceeds from their raffle for the week of the 4th of July. You can buy a ticket at

You can also donate ANY amount to Big Paws Canine (the non-profit we're working with for this event) (says SC, but it is connected to the Sioux Falls location too)
There are many areas to park in NE Sioux Falls. PLEASE try to avoid any parking area NOT on this list. We have asked permission from these places.

We've decided to ask food trucks not to be a part of the event this year, in an effort to keep people safe. The concept this year was for people to watch the show from the safety of their own vehicle. You are welcome to bring your own coolers, but again, please enjoy the evening from inside your vehicle.
There is always a possibility of bad weather, so we do have a plan for that. The following day SUNDAY, JULY 5th is our alternate day for the fireworks show in the event that we have rain or too much wind on the 4th of July. We are still too far away for an accurate prediction, but we're working with to stay updated.
