Jumping into the New Year literally with skates, skies, and sleds is going to be so much fun when the Sioux Falls 2023 Frosty Frolics rolls around. I can't think of a better time to get outdoors to enjoy the winter.

Before you summon a dose of leftover humbugness, just take a look at what this 3-day weekend of fun has to offer.

The 35th Annual Sioux Falls Frosty Frolics begins Friday, January 6, and just about everything is FREE thanks to the Sioux Falls Parks & Recreation Department.
