Because we are coming up on a busy holiday weekend , I thought I would post just some of the many things going on in the area. Anyone who says there is “nothing to do” in the Sioux City Metro Area should check out just some of the things going on in Siouxland..they might be surprised to find out what many of us already know. We live in a vibrant and happenin’ community.
