SD State Fair organizers brainstorming for 2018


Associated Press - December 28, 2017

HURON, SD - Bringing back the parade of livestock champions is among the ideas a South Dakota State Fair task force is exploring for the annual event in Huron.

Fair manager Peggy Besch said finding a time that could work for all 4-H, FFA and open-class winners is “a little challenging.”

The parade could be a way the fair marks the centennial of its grandstand, built in 1918, she said in a telephone interview Wednesday.

Members of the State Fair Commission met Dec. 19 at Nordby Exhibit Hall on the fairgrounds and by teleconference.

Commissioners Scott Cordts of Huron, Tom Harmon of Pierre and Loren Noess of Mitchell agreed to be on the task force.

“We’re just brainstorming on some fun things to do to celebrate,” Besch said. “It’s pretty fluid yet.”

She became fair manager in December 2014 and succeeded Jerome Bartel, who stepped down after seven years to become manager for the Alaska State Fair.

Lucas Lentsch, who was state secretary of agriculture, announced the appointment.
