Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation in partnership with Friends of Levitt Sioux Falls and the National Levitt Foundation hoisted the first roof support beam on Tuesday (January 15) for the Levitt Shell at Falls Park.

Levitt at the Falls is set to open this year in downtown Sioux Falls as the property on north Phillips Avenue continues to be developed as Falls Park West. It's estimated that 50 free concerts will take place each summer.

The design of the venue’s roof was inspired by the flowing waters of the adjacent Big Sioux River. It will create a focal point for the festival grounds and an iconic landmark within downtown Sioux Falls.
