posted: Mar. 22, 2018

DOWNTOWN RAPID CITY, SD – Thursday nights at Main Street Square return with a new twist in 2018. Thursdays on the Square is a weekly, summer entertainment series featuring a robust lineup, family-friendly activities, and a vibrant crowd. Meet in the heart of the city on the lawn at Main Street Square for fun from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursdays, from May 31 to Aug. 30. Thursdays on the Square Entertainment Co-sponsor is Vast Broadband. 

Main Street Square aims to further their mission for community connectivity by creating opportunities for local groups to bolster their communication efforts by using the plaza to host an event on a bustling night Downtown. There are four remaining Thursday nights open to community organizations wishing to organize an event at the Square. 

On Main Street Square hosted evenings find something fun for everyone in the Regional Health and Scull Construction Kidz Zone, with inflatables, the Main Street Square Fun Express train, games and more, cool off with an assortment of refreshments in the Bud Light Beverage Garden and grab a bite to eat from a food vendor. 

“It’s that time of the year to bust out the lawn chains and put on your dancing shoes,” said Elizabeth Smith, events director at Main Street Square. “We can’t wait to see our friends, new and old, at the Square on Thursday nights enjoying the variety of entertainment scheduled.”
