Paint The Plow

Paint The Plow is an annual event where local schools decorate the City snow plows with festive holiday designs.

The program is open to elementary, middle, junior high, and high schools within Sioux Falls. The students, their friends and family, as well as the general public, are welcome to come view the plows and vote for their favorite.

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.

The City of Sioux Falls does not censor the content or any viewpoints on the artwork. Any messages or views expressed are not those of the City, nor endorsed by the City.
