It's a very busy fall weekend with no shortage of things to do. Here's a roundup of what's happening:
- Celebrate Native American Day. Find a full day of fun events Monday to celebrate Native American Day in Sioux Falls. It all kicks off with a prayer in Lyon Park at 9 a.m., a fun run at 10:15 a.m. and a parade on Phillips Avenue downtown starting at 11 a.m. Then the party moves to the Levitt for an afternoon Wacipi.
