Garth Brooks is coming to town on Friday for the first of nine concerts. So the our fearless Mayor Mike Huether wants everyone in town to go cowboy and cowgirl.

The press release reads:

Mayor Mike Huether is encouraging Sioux Falls businesses to encourage their employees to wear cowboy boots, hats, and jeans to work and designate the next two Fridays casual days for staff.

“The world’s biggest touring event is happening in Sioux Falls, so let’s have some extra fun and kick up our boots, put on our jeans, and wear cowboy hats at work. Let’s make a memory, Sioux Falls!” says Mayor Huether.

City of Sioux Falls employees also might be seen wearing their hats and boots these two Fridays, all in the spirit of being part of the fun.

I too encourage encouraging encouragement. (???)

So dust off your dusters, shine up your sh-- kickers and dress completely different because Garth.

I on the other hand am going to go goth in honor of Chris Gaines.
