If you are looking for something to do, Main Street Square is the place to go. There is always something going on. From live music, dancing fountains, movies under the stars to ice skating and so much more. I believe Main Street Square makes Rapid City the enjoyable downtown experience that it is.

Just WOW! I was amazed by this location surrounded by great food and drink establishments, and even ice cream for the kids (or big kids!) The fountains are mesmerizing to watch and little ones will enjoy splashing around and getting VERY wet, so bring dry clothes. At night, the fountains light up and are accompanied by music which is great... More

My family planned an evening around attending one of their summer "Movies Under the Stars." We packed a picnic supper, chairs, bug spray, and headed out. Our family happens to include an 11-year old dog who is perfectly obedient and has attended countless public functions with us in the past. We arrived, set up out chairs, and began to enjoy... More

Disappointed with Main Street Square. I just moved to Rapid 2 months ago and have walked downtown and thought this city had a cool thing going on with the stage, waterworks, sculpture artists, etc. Then, I attended my first Movie Under the Stars and was told half way through the movie that I had to leave because my dog wasn't...

Why are dogs not allowed in a public square? Are you aware you are the town-center? In the open? With a public fountain? Your policy is very confusing. My wife, sister and I just tried watching Star Wars at your Movies Under the Stars. About five minutes in, we were asked to leave because we had a dog. My dog... More

A town center that Rockwell could paint. Lots of activity, most free. Sit and enjoy the fountains, or ice skating, or music, just to name a few.

I had hoped to find something interesting here. The fountains kept the kids' interest for the better part of 60 seconds. The fake grass was a million degrees, and this was in late September. Can't imagine it in the summer. The mall and shops have nothing for tourists at all. No gift shops. Not a one. Boring. Waste of time... More
