How about bonding with your kid by scaring the pants off 'em for a good cause!? The Silverstar Car Wash at 57th Street & Marion Avenue in Sioux Falls is transforming their wash into a Carnival of Screams!

The really cool part is that this is a fundraiser for Feeding South Dakota.

This event that started in 2019 has become an annual Halloween event in the Sioux Falls area. You can expect to see lots of freaky clowns shaking cars, trying to open up car doors, screaming, and haunting the heck out of the carwash.

The cost is $18 for a Platinum Plus Wash. Members get in FREE.

Feeding South Dakota Chief Executive Officer Lori Dykstra says, “kids love all the colors and everything going on at the carwash so why not have some fun and make it haunted!? There will be live people inside the carwash as you go through. You'll be getting scared for a good cause.”

The event raised over $3,100 last year and provided nearly 10,000 meals for families in need.

Dykstra explained that Feeding South Dakota “Does boxes every month so families can come to one of our mobile distribution sites around Sioux Falls and be able to pick up 75-pounds of food. That is frozen foods, perishable foods, fresh produce, and other foods each month for their family.”

Silverstar’s Haunted Car Wash is scaring folks from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. this Wednesday, Oct. 27 through Saturday, Oct. 30 at the 57th & Marion location only.

The Oldest Wood-Framed Church In Sioux Falls

Saint Joseph Cathedral at 521 N Duluth Ave in Sioux Falls was founded in 1915. But that's not the oldest church in the city. The Beaver Creek Lutheran Church at Heritage Park on the Augustana College campus at 33rd & S. Prairie Ave. was built in 1892, making it the oldest wood-framed church in Sioux Falls.

Pam Cole Executive Director of the Nordland Heritage Foundation says there are some exciting events and future plans involving Heritage Park. Tours of this wonderful look into the prairie past are available Wed. - Sat. from 10 am to 3 pm and by appointment.
