Red ribbon week kicks off at Dinosaur Park

RAPID CITY, S.D. – Students from several Rapid City Area Schools joined the fight against drug use on Monday.

People from all throughout the community gathered at Dinosaur Park for a red ribbon ceremony. Students from all over the school district signed large red banners. Signing the banner is a promise to stay away from drugs and live to their full potential.

All the banners are put together to create one big ribbon and the ribbon is placed on the big dinosaur at the top of the hill.

“Somewhere along the lines they’ll have the opportunity to try drugs or alcohol and they better be ready for that question because they’re going to have to say no if they want to reach their full potential,” said Mayor Steve Allender.

The ribbon ceremony at Dinosaur Park has kicked off red ribbon week in Rapid City for years.
