Deadwood Tree lights up Outlaw Square with Christmas cheer

DEADWOOD, S.D. — Outlaw Square was filled with Christmas cheer Friday evening when the tree lit up at 6 p.m.


Free skating on the glice rink and a visit from Santa added to the spirited fun, and the temperatures dipped down to winter levels just in time.

Activities Friday evening supported the idea that the tourism season in Deadwood isn’t confined to summer, winter can be just as fun.

Outlaw Square starts Christmas celebrations

Bobby Rock, Director of Outlaw Square, talked about the holiday and winter activities around town.

“We’ve got 320 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, we’ve got skiing up at Terry Peak,” he explains. “We’ve got cross country trails, we’ve got snowshoeing trails, we’ve got our glice rink to have fun with. So families can come and enjoy Deadwood. Make it your hub and go out and have all kind of fun in the hills.” 

The fun in Deadwood continues with a Kris Kringle Christmas Market next weekend, and the decorations in Outlaw Square will continue to shine with Christmas joy through the holidays.
