The holidays mean snowy nights, seasonal sights, and spending time with loved ones. In Sioux Falls, we have everything you need for all of the above this holiday season. Check out our top five holiday sights and add them to your must-see list!

1. Winter Wonderland at Falls Park

A favorite holiday tradition for both locals and guests, Winter Wonderland at Falls Park is a sight you can’t miss. Hundreds of thousands of lights are strung everywhere you look, and synced with holiday music from a local radio station. Pile in the car, bring some hot chocolate, and prepare for a truly dazzling experience.

Insider tip: For an even better view, see it all from our five-story viewing tower!

2. Downtown Sioux Falls

The holidays are a special time for DTSF. You’ll find the streets decked with lights, decor, and events all season long. Every business and organization celebrates differently, but it all contributes to a truly magical holiday experience.

3. Christmas at the Cathedral

Held in one of the state’s most iconic landmarks, Christmas at the Cathedral is stunning in both sight and sound. The musical production is hosted by the elaborate Cathedral of St. Joseph to raise funds for local charities. 

4. Holiday Lights & Lanes

It wouldn’t be the holidays without light displays. For us, Falls Park is only the beginning! Sioux Falls has more than 30 holiday light and lane displays for your entertainment! With themes like Penguin Lane, Star of the East, and Candy Cane Lane, these shows will delight everyone in your group.

5. Sioux Falls Santa

Enjoy a jolly-filled breakfast at the Great Plains Zoo in a winter wonderland setting. Meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, enjoy up-close animal encounters, listen to carolers and more!
