Whether you are spending the New Year's Day holiday weekend by taking in the ball drops at local hotels, taking in hockey action, going to a late movie, catching concert and musical performances, watching football or year-end presentations on TV, visiting a favorite pub, hosting a party or heading to a friend's house, may you have a safe and memorable holiday experience.
And there are many options to get home safely if you find yourself impaired or buzzed. Make arrangements now for a designated driver, line up ride-sharing services, call a cab, have a friend or family member on stand by, whatever it takes to get home safe.
On behalf of the Rapid City municipal government - mayor, City Council, department directors and employees - it has been a pleasure serving you in 2022 and may your 2023 be filled with much happiness, joy and many great memories. May your New Year's holiday weekend be a safe and enjoyable one.
