What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?
Dec 30, 2011
What are you doing New Year’s Eve? If you don’t have plans, don't feel like you have to mope at home. Consider attending one of the many different events taking place around the state. Delmont has the only New Year's Parade in the state, and it's followed by a tasting event featuring South Dakota products. You can swing your partner into 2012 at the New Year's Eve Barn Dance at Besler's Cadillac Ranch in St. Onge. There's a wide variety of music to choose from at different venues in downtown Sioux Falls. Aberdonians can ring in the New Year and raise money for a good cause at the Make a Wish Foundation's annual fundraiser and dance. They'll be dropping the ball at the Franklin Hotel in Deadwood tomorrow night, and of course there will be goings-on at Rapid City's Main Street Square and the Hotel Alex Johnson.
The next question is what you'll do New Year's Day. Are you the sort who likes to climb Harney Peak or plunge into a frozen lake, or do you plan to ease gently into 2012? For those of you who wait a day or two to rouse yourselves, keep an eye out for South Dakota locations on television. Pioneer Auto Show and 1880 Town in Murdo are among the spots to be featured on the January 2nd episode of "American Pickers", a History Channel program.
