  • Thanksgiving Weekend - Black Hills Events


For many folks, today is the last day of the work week before an extended Thanksgiving weekend. After today, many of us will spend time with family, enjoy a good meal, watch the Macy"s Thanksgiving Day Parade and some football and just completely relax.

This weekend should be a good one for some much needed R&R here in the hills, but it"ll also be a good one to get out and participate in some holiday kick-off activities. And there are a bunch of them! Here"s just a sampling of the festive events taking place in the communities around the region the next few days. Click on any one of them below for more details.

Whether you round up the family and attend some of these special holiday events or just hunker down in a cabin in the hills with a warm fire this weekend, take time to enjoy the natural beauty of the Black Hills around you. From all of us at the travel blog, have a great weekend and happy Thanksgiving!

About the Author

Joe is a resident of Spearfish, S.D. He grew up in the tall-corn state of Iowa, where he developed an early interest in all things outdoors. After high school he moved to Vermillion, S.D., where he earned his bachelor’s degree in public relations and advertising.

During his college years, two things caught his attention: the beauty of western South Dakota’s Black Hills and a girl from those Black Hills. After graduating from college, Joe traveled across the country as a recruiter for the University of South Dakota. He saw the sights from Pittsburgh to Las Vegas and everywhere in between, but it was the Black Hills (and the girl) that kept drawing him back.

He and wife moved back to the Black Hills in 2008. He's an avid hiker, mountain biker and road cyclist whose future plans include trying to fit a pair of kayaks into the spare bedroom.
