Hatchery Holidays is a tradition that makes the historic fish hatchery one of Spearfish’s signature attractions.

“It’s just tradition,” said Nancy Cole, assistant to the director of the D.C. Booth Fish Hatchery. “People love to come on our grounds year-round. We’re Spearfish’s largest tourist attraction, and so people love to come here. They love to walk our grounds. They love to come here because we put on a special flair for the holidays.”

Admission is $25 and tickets are available at the gift shop and the Booth House. Proceeds benefit the hatchery’s educational programs and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service programs at the facility.

The event is planned to go on regardless of the weather. For more information and updates, visit the D.C. Booth Fish Hatchery’s Facebook page.
