Post-Thanksgiving Web Roundup

Nov 25, 2011

It’s the post-Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The typical Black Friday experience sounds so intense, fighting through crowds to grapple with other shoppers for Christmas bargains. In Hill City, they celebrate Olde Tyme Christmas instead, with open houses for Main Street businesses, “Trees and Trains” at the South Dakota State Railroad Museum, a holiday parade, and musicians, refreshments and chestnut roasting at the Alpine Inn. Chestnut roasting!? We thought that only existed in songs.

Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, so don’t forget to see what holiday deals your town has to offer. Our 2011 Gift Guide has other locally-made gift suggestions. 

Speaking of small businesses, The Mitchell Daily Republic recently ran a story about Julie and Brad Boisen, a couple of transplants from Minnesota who are helping revitalize Plankinton with a series of successful businesses ranging from hunting to health care to Heartland cuisine

If you’ve finished your holiday shopping already, congratulations! Enjoy the rewards of a quiet winter morning in Custer State Park, as seen by Chad Coppess.

Or consider going ice skating. Rapid City’s Main Street Square opened their outdoor skating rink on Thursday, and it's already proving to be quite popular.

Whatever you choose to do, please have a delightful weekend.
