Enjoy some green space including flowers and weekly activities. This installation, in its third year, encourages outdoor active lifestyles in our lively downtown. FREE.

She describes it as follows: “A Prairie Pothole is a pocket of earth formed when glaciers covered ancient plains. Today, these depressions fill with water, and are a haven for birds and other animals. This piece depicts such a place in the early hours of predawn and sunrise and evokes all the wonder and majesty of a new day unfolding on the South Dakota Prairie.” JUL 9 ............................................ 8 p.m.

Celebrate Bare Bodkins’ 20th anniversary with one of Shakespeare’s most iconic tragedies! Macbeth follows a man driven by ambition, greed, and dark magic to pursue the Scottish crown by any means necessary.

Get ready for fast-paced drama, intense sword fighting, and plenty of witches, ghosts, and creepy fun for everyone! Join Bare Bodkins Theatre Company for their 20th summer in Falls Park’s beautiful Queen Bee Mill as they breathe new life into this classic tale using their signature bare bones style. The show will run approximately 90 minutes. For more information, “Like” Bare Bodkins Theatre Company on Facebook or visit barebodkins.org. The 90 minute performance will take place in the ruins of the Queen Bee Mill at Falls Park. Seating is on metal bleachers with very limited room for those needing assistance to sit in lawn chairs.

Farmer’s Market

The Falls Park Visitor Information Center offers guidance to those visiting the city. A five-story, 50-foot viewing tower offers a breathtaking, panoramic view of the park and city. The observation tower is free. For more information, please contact the Sioux Falls Convention & Visitors Bureau at 605-275-6060. Hours of Operation: • April 24–May 27, 10 a.m.–9 p.m., daily • May 28–September 5, 9 a.m.–9 p.m., daily • September 6–October 16, 10 a.m.–9 p.m., daily.

Falls Overlook Café The quartzite building still standing on the east bank is the Sioux Falls Light and Power Company building, completed in 1908. The building housed three 500-kilowatt hydroelectric generators and used the dam and the millrace from the Queen Bee Mill. In subsequent years the plant added additional coal-fired steam generators. The plant was abandoned in 1974 and donated to the city in 1977. Before remodeling took place to create the Falls Overlook Café, the building was in similar condition as when it was first constructed. Today, Falls Overlook Café serves a variety of family-friendly foods, ice cream treats, and beverages to be enjoyed both inside and out. Historical items are on display. For more information please call the Overlook Café at 605-367-4885.

Stockyards Ag Experience Barn This historic building on the North side of the Falls, was built in the late 1800s as a horse barn, but it is not known by whom or for what purpose. Perhaps it was to house horses that worked any of the eleven stone quarries that were in existence at that time. Perhaps it was part of a local creamery. No records exist to tell us, but the building is charming none-the-less. From 1999–2010, it housed an arts center and became a place for artists to exhibit and practice art. The barn is now the home of the Stockyards Ag Experience which tells the story of agricultural impact in this region, beginning with the Sioux Falls Stockyards. For more information visit www.stockyardsagexperience.org or call 605-332-1917.

Just north of the Horse Barn under the Falls Park open air shelter. Shop a variety of vendors for locally grown produce, meats and poultry, baked goods, garden plants, and craft items. Open Saturdays, 8 a.m.–1 p.m., May through October. Free customer parking. For more information contact Harriet at 605-366-1056, Harriet@SeedtimeandHarvest.net, or visit www.fallsparkfarmersmarket.com.

Queen Bee Mill The remains of the seven-story Queen Bee Mill, a brainchild of Richard Pettigrew, lie on the east side of the river. In the fall of 1878, Pettigrew decided Sioux Falls needed its own mill so farmers could avoid the cost of shipping wheat to Minnesota or Wisconsin. Pettigrew acquired the land and then traveled east to locate an investor: New Jersey capitalist George I. Seney. The mill opened on October 25, 1881, and consisted of a seven-story main structure built of Sioux Quartzite quarried on site. Nearly $500,000 was spent on the construction of the state-of-the-art mill and its supporting structures. At the time of its construction, the mill was one of the most advanced in America. The mill could process 1,500 bushels each day. However, by 1883, the mill was closed—a victim of inadequate water power and a short supply of wheat. Several companies tried in vain to make the mill a success in succeeding years. In 1929, it was converted into a warehouse. On January 30, 1956, fire swept through the structure, destroying the wooden roof and interior floors. The upper walls were later knocked down to prevent them from falling.
