BLUNT, S.D. – (DRG News) This weekend brings BluntFest 2012 to the city of Blunt. Organizers have put together a weekend full of activities as part of this year’s event. Committee member Heather Sperry says plans call for a motorcycle poker run today at 6:00 p.m., a supper-which includes a pie and ice cream social-along with a night parade to be followed by fireworks. Tomorrow, Sperry says the day will be a full one-starting with breakfast at the senior center.
