Gold Discovery Days in Custer draws big crowds

CUSTER, SD — In the 1800’s Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer lead troops into the Black Hills and found gold. That area today is known as Custer.

In celebration of this historical discovery, the Custer Chamber of Commerce hosted the Gold Discovery Days festival all weekend long.

Saturday festivities kicked off with a pancake breakfast, a car show, and a parade. Attendees were also welcome to check out hand-made quilts and a flower show.

For those who were more competitive, they had a volleyball, basketball, and cornhole tournament.

“Gold discover days has been a total blowout this year,” said Louis Umbarger, Owner/Event Director of the Custer Beacon “We’ve had this awesome car show, we’ve had a cornhole tournament going on, we’ve got the the carnival happening all evening behind us… It’s just been a knockout weekend.”
