PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) Planning continues for next month’s Oahe Days event. In 2011, Oahe Days was cancelled by the flood, but organizers say it will return this year, bigger and better than ever. Brad Curtis says volunteers are meeting weekly now, in preparation for Oahe Days; which will be June 15-17 in parts of Steamboat Park and other nearby locations.
Curtis says there will be several new elements to Oahe Days this year; including a carnival and swamp boat rides. He also says because parts of Steamboat Park are still recovering from flood damage, many of the activities will be held in a different area of the park; thanks to lots of help from the City of Pierre.
Oahe Days will kick off with a parade and will also include a tribute to members of the South Dakota National Guard’s 200th Engineer Company, who are returning to South Dakota very soon after serving in Afghanistan the past year.
Oahe Days will include several food, merchandise and arts vendors; along with music and activities.
