It’s not every day a single building in a city can bring about seasons, but the legend sitting on 69th street in south Sioux Falls has those capabilities.

It’s long been a beacon of growth and hope for the city, but what many do not know is that the first day it opens, spring starts.

The secrets behind how the building immediately melts all snow, clears the streets of ice, and puts little buds on trees is unknown thus far.

Some believe it was built on an ancient Native American burial ground and is haunted, others believe that is dumb and sounds like a B-rate horror movie.

“We’re in the business of bringing spring to the good people of Sioux Falls,” said the eerily happy owner of the building.

Many young children were seen going deep into the building’s belly on Wednesday when the building suddenly awoke from the deep winter sleep it took.

“Unfortunately some children have to be sacrificed to the building for spring to start. Don’t worry, they are happy inside,” said the owner of the building.

The 69th Milkyway’s children will be awoken sometime next week.
