(SD)-Road Work Cancels Popular Rapid City Festival

By: John Axtell Posted at: 04/17/2017 09:49 AM
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A popular summer arts festival in Rapid City has been canceled for the first time in 42 years, but not because of a lack of interest or participation.

      Organizers of June's two-day West Boulevard Summer Festival at Wilson Park say it's has been called off due to ongoing construction on nearby Mount Rushmore Road.
 
     The festival has been a mainstay at the park since 1975, typically attracting around 20,000 visitors and 100 vendors including jewelers, artists, and basket weavers.

    Funds raised from the event are used to protect the West Boulevard Historic District, Wilson Park and the Wilson school playground.
