CRAZY HORSE, S.D. (AP) – Crazy Horse Memorial is offering free admission and a dynamite blast on the mountain during the Memorial Day weekend to kick off its summer visitor season.
The memorial in the southern Black Hills will waive admission fees Friday through Monday for residents of the Dakotas, Montana, Wyoming and Nebraska who contribute cash or canned food to a Rapid City, S.D., food drive.
A dynamite blast is planned for Monday.
The memorial is a mountain carving in progress that will honor Oglala Lakota warrior Crazy Horse. Work on the sculpture began in 1948.
