RAPID CITY, SD – Ring in the New Year with a firework show and more in Downtown Rapid City.

The City of Rapid City Fire Department, the City of Rapid City and Destination Rapid City have joined together to present a firework show at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014. The fireworks will be discharged at Executive Golf Course, and the display can be seen from Downtown Rapid City, including Memorial Park, Main Street Square and a special viewing platform on the third floor of the parking ramp next to Main Street Square.

The 20-minute show, presented by Zambelli Fireworks, is choreographed and synchronized to a music broadcast on The Mix radio station, at 93.9 FM.

“We urge families to spend the day Downtown, dining, shopping, ice skating, then enjoy the fireworks,” said Dan Senftner, CEO and President of Destination Rapid City. “Those who want to stay out later can then enjoy the variety of nightlife Downtown has to offer.”

Visit Main Street Square for Downtown Countdown and Teen Skate Party, sponsored by Northwestern Engineering Company, with ice skating from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and family entertainment with JDProductions from 5 to 8 p.m. Vendors include Alternative Fuel Coffee House, Sergeant Poppers Kettle Korn and Rolling Cupcake.

Many Downtown businesses will hold events to ring in the New Year, including ball drops at both the Hotel Alex Johnson and Holiday Inn – Rushmore Plaza.
