April [snow] showers bring May flowers

Flower baskets placed all over downtown Rapid City

RAPID CITY, S.D. — It has been a long winter here in the Black Hills but Destination Rapid City is bringing spring to the city with flowers. They received the large shipment early Friday morning at Main Street Square.

Potted plants were placed in 130 different locations around downtown Rapid City. Scattering flower baskets throughout the city has been a tradition for years. 

Among the flowers were petunias, ornamental grass, and verbena. Crews will spend about four hours daily maintaining the plants throughout the entire spring and summer.

“We will maintain them, we will water them daily throughout the summer, we will keep a close eye on it, but just seeing the thought of spring which is flowers, will bring downtown alive and make you feel better,” said Dan Senftner, the CEO of Destination Rapid City. 

You can find the flowers on Main St. and the streets surrounding it.
