Paint the Plows Event Is This Saturday at the Empire Mall

The Eighth Annual Paint the Plows event will display 22 plows painted by area students this Saturday, October 21, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The plows will be on exhibit at the Empire Mall in the JCPenney east parking lot.

The Paint the Plows program is open to elementary, middle, junior high, and high schools within Sioux Falls. The students and their friends and family as well as the general public are welcome to come view the plows and vote for their favorite. The plows are set up to be viewed by car or on foot. Participation certificates will be delivered to the schools the following week.

“The Paint the Plows program showcases the artwork and creativity of so many talented students and is a highlight for our staff each year,” says Galynn Huber, Street Operations Manager.

The Street Division primes the plows, and the schools and organizations supply the paint. The participants receive the plows approximately one week after the start of school and complete their works of art one week prior to the display.
