  • 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...  read more »

  • 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 is extremely well behaved. At the time of being kicked out, he was laying on our blanket. Even while we were being kicked out, he did not get up to approach your agent. Last week I saw a man with two tagged raccoons at the square. He was letting kids approach the raccoons. Seriously. And I can't bring my dog.
  • Terrible pet policy. It is a public outdoor area, akin to a park, and for some odd reason dogs aren't allowed. You aren't allowed to even walk a dog on the sidewalks around it in the evening when there are no events going on. Do their security guards seriously have nothing better to do than harass people walking their dogs? I know the nasty grass is fake, and I don't like walking on it myself, so my dog isn't going to pee on it. Leave me alone, please.
  • 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 allowed. #1 my dog was peacefully laying down on the cement, not obstructing traffic and didn't even lift his head to smell the complaining security guard. #2 my dog was being way more well behaved than the horde of screaming children that were beating each other with foam swords, threatening the poor people sitting nearby, and disrupting the show. #3 Being that it was my first time going to the event and I was unaware of the dog policy, I hoped to be able to take a warning and finish out the show but instead was made to leave the event half way through the movie....can't wait to see what other unfortunate surprises this city has hidden under its updated facade.
  • There's always something going on here, from a bridal fair to a street food festival. P programming is amazing. On days when there isn't an event the interactive fountains are great for kids and in the winter there is ice skating! Fun for all ages 365 days a year.
  • This area is becoming very nice. They have been working on it for a while and they continue to create serenity in the downtown area. Kids love to play in the fountains during the summer.
