Central States Fair kicks off this Friday

RAPID CITY, S.D.(KOTA)- The Sturgis Rally may be finished, but the summertime fun isn’t quite through yet.

Ron Jeffries, general manager of the Central States Fair, says it’s all coming together for Friday’s ribbon cutting.

It’s much more than carnival fun though, with rodeo, concerts, and motorsports all on the docket.

Jeffries said there are free events to ensure the fair is accessible to everyone in the community.

Tickets for the fair can be purchased at the ticket booth in Rapid City, or online at centralstatesfair.com
