Thousands flock to Spearfish Optimist & Healthy Living Fair

Posted: Updated:

People flocked to Black Hills State University on March 3-4 for the Spearfish Optimist Home Show and Healthy Living Fair.

Attendees could find anything from floor tiles to beauty products with over 120 different vendors attending. This is the 30th year that the event has been held, with thousands of people from all over the region and Wyoming checking it out.

President of Spearfish Optimist Molly Salcone said people were asked to give a money donation or canned food item in order to support a local non-profit.

“We collect canned goods, we take them to the food pantry - Spearfish Food Pantry every year,” Salcone said. “And we take tons of food. People are really generous, where they only need to bring a can, and they'll bring us a whole bag.”

The event was held throughout the weekend at the Young Center on BHSU’s campus.
