South Dakota Web Roundup
Jun 8, 2012
Strike up the band and fire up the ferris wheel! Nothing beats the parties South Dakota towns throw for themselves every summer. Here's a few taking place this weekend.
Ipswich Trail Days celebrates the Edmunds County town's status as home of the Yellowstone Trail. Volga's Old Timers Weekend features a parade, live music, children's activities and fireworks. "Men who are not afraid to show their feminine side" are welcome to compete in the Womanless Pageant at Harrisburg Days (there's also a car cruise, softball, fishing derby, arts festival, carnival and more). On Saturday, the Galena Historical Society will raise funds for the renovation of their 1882 schoolhouse with a historic walk through the Black Hills ghost town, barbecue and a little bluegrass music. History's also the focus of Sunday's Clark Heritage Day, held at the Clark County Historical Society grounds. Elkton's Harvest Festival spills over into Monday and Tuesday with a parade, carnival, food and the Miss Elkton pageant.
