American pride. There’s no shortage of that commodity here in the Black Hills of western South Dakota. Almost every town has a parade, and most of them have fireworks, too. Old West shootouts, cook-offs, car shows ‘n shines, great music, picnics, ice cream socials, farmers markets, re-enactors, arts and crafts vendors. The Black Hills is hosting an American birthday party, and everyone is invited!
