A few of the sure signs that summer is winding on down is the start of the school season, the start of cool crisp nights, and the return of one the area's longest running festivals to downtown Sioux Falls.

Saturday, (September 7) marks the return of the 56th annual Sidewalk Arts Festival to the Sioux Empire.

KSFY TV reports that once again this year the event is absolutely free and takes place in downtown Sioux Falls on the streets surrounding the Washington Pavilion: Main and Dakota Avenues between 10th and 12th Streets, 11th Street from Main west to Minnesota Avenue and in the parking lots south of the Pavilion.

Those attending this region's largest one-day arts festival can expect to see more than 260 fine art, folk art, craft, nonprofit and food booths lined up along the streets from 9 AM to 5 PM that day.

The annual Sioux Falls Sidewalk Art Festival is a fundraiser for the Visual Arts Center at the Washington Pavilion.
