The South Dakota State Fair is officially underway, despite the rising number of new COVID 19 cases.
Officials say it’s hard to gauge how many will attend this year’s state fair in Huron.
A typical fair brings in anywhere from 200,000 to 217,000 attendees.
The state fair is one of many large scale events held in the state, despite the global coronavirus pandemic.
From fireworks at Mt. Rushmore to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and the Sioux Empire Fair, South Dakota is one of the only state’s in the country bringing together large groups of people.
