Central States Fair: Indigenous People Day

RAPID CITY, S.D. — The Central States Fair is back in town. Just as any fair there are carnival rides, food, games, and vendors. What makes it unique is the variety of events they host throughout the week.

Events include dance camp, hypnotists, magicians, cattle/ longhorns shows, and live music. There are also a host of motocross events and rodeo.

One of those events happening at the fair on Saturday was the indigenous people’s celebration and expo. The expo featured a fashion show, a cultural dance class, and art displays.

“A very subtle showcase of the overall blanket of Lakota culture, with the intention bringing a sense of awareness to something,” Wanbli Ceya, a performer.

General admission to the fair is $3 and there are also specialty passes available. The fair will continue through Aug. 25.
