Weekend Web Roundup
Apr 13, 2012
Do you ever wish you could be in multiple places at once? I do every time I look at our events calendar. If I wasn't hosting a party to celebrate sending our May/June issue off to the printers tonight, I'd love to be in Brookings for a rare screening of the 1925 silent film Body and Soul. Oscar Micheaux, a pioneering African American filmmaker, was a homesteader near Gregory, South Dakota before he started writing novels and making films. Brookings will also be hosting the Jackrabbit Stampede Rodeo at South Dakota State University this weekend, which is sure to be a lively time.
I'm sorry to be missing the Lakota Omniciye Wacipi at Black Hills State University in Spearfish, also. I spoke with a charming young man at the Center for American Indian Studies, who kindly taught this ignorant wasichu how to pronounce omniciye.
Downtown Sioux Falls will be full of music and fun Saturday night for the Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Society's Downtown Jazz Crawl.
Those of us with a soft spot for baby animals will want to visit Bear Country USA for Cubfest. It's not often that one has a chance to pet a bear. Like all little ones, they grow up much too fast.
That's just a small sampling of the things going on this weekend around the state. Check our events calendar for other options. If you've got an event coming up, please let us know! Submit your event here.
