New Year's Eve Downtown
Ring in the New Year with a fireworks show and more in Downtown Rapid City.

Fireworks Show
The Rapid City Fire Department, the City of Rapid City and Destination Rapid City have joined together to present a fireworks show at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31, 2015. The fireworks will be discharged at Executive Golf Course, and the display can be seen from Downtown Rapid City, including Memorial Park and 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. The New Year’s Eve show is the only city fireworks show in Rapid City all year due to increased fire risk in the warmer months.
