SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) – The Leola Rhubarb Festival begins Friday.
The festival started in 1972 when community members wanted to do something for the town.
“Everyone comes together and enjoys the day. We have lots of free things for people, so it’s just kind of fun to see everybody and have a reason to come out,” said Kayla Casey. “Along with many other things, we have the traditional parade. We have a bake sale and the rhubarb baking contest, so you can submit your baked goods and try your best!”
The festival runs from June 23 to 25. For more information about activities and times, visit facebook.com/groups/2545712422128931/.
