A Siouxland Celebration, Yankton, SD

9 Oct

I try to get to as many community celebrations as I can in the Siouxland area. I attended previously a few 125th community celebrations at smaller communities like Sioux Center, HospersOcheyedan and Charter Oak in Iowa.

Yankton celebrates River Boat Days which harkins back to its being a gateway into the Dakota Territory after the Lewis and Clark expedition. In its first few years it was even the capitol of the Dakota Territory. Life is much different now than it was when these communities were each founded, but the fun and joy and remembrance by locals is always nice.
