June 25, 2018

FORT SISSETON HISTORIC STATE PARK, S.D. – Fort Sisseton State Park will be hosting its Independence Day commemoration in classic style on June 30, at 1 p.m. CDT.

A number of activities and interpretive programs will be offered for all ages, including blacksmithing, planting pollinator gardens, making ice cream the old-fashioned way and an obstacle course with old fashioned games.

Throughout the day, a scavenger hunt guided tour will be available. The Visitor Center, Museum and Gift Shop will be open.

“This is the twelfth annual Fourth of July celebration at the fort,” says Park Manager Ali Tonsfeldt. “The 2018 lineup looks great and should be a wonderful opportunity for families that are seeking a day filled with something for everyone.”

There is no charge for the event; however, park entrance fees are required. For more information contact Fort Sisseton at 605.448.5474.
