Pierre, The One Christmas Town In South Dakota That’s Simply A Must Visit This Season
When is the last time you visited our magnificent capital city? If the last time was your high school trip to the Capitol building or visiting some obscure relative in the 1980s, you are missing out on the beauty and splendor of the legendary Pierre, which is even more of a can’t-miss place come this most wonderful time of the year:
Founded in 1880, Pierre is a former trading post turned state capital that is arguably the most festive town in South Dakota!
Thanks to its friendly residents and business owners, Pierre lights up every year via several unique displays and colorful bulbs that adorn nearly every street and neighborhood.
In addition to the many displays and lights, what makes Pierre the best Christmas town in South Dakota? It is because of events like their famous Christmas at the Capitol...
Running November 26th through December 26th (2019), Christmas at the Capitol is one of South Dakota's most beloved traditions and features a whopping 100+ trees decorated by community organizations, businesses, schools, and churches.
...Annual Parade of Lights...
Taking place on November 25th (2019), the Pierre Parade of Lights is the official kick-off to the holiday season that you will not want to miss!
...Special shopping events around town...
Don't forget to shop small this holiday season.
...Unforgettable concerts, Cultural Heritage events, open houses, and much more.
