South Dakota's Largest Tailgate Party draws over a thousand

Posted:

More than one thousand people packed the streets for the area's biggest super bowl tailgate party.

The party included, a mean game of bean bag toss, food and giveaways.
Former Husker player Bob Nelson was proclaimed Grand Marshall of this year's event during the kick off hosted by KOTA Territory's own Mike Modrick.
 
 
"I feel honored that I could come out here and do this and help out with the charity. I think I'd pull for the 49'ers since I spent one year there," says Nelson.
 
And it was a town divided between those rooting for the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers.

 
"Root on those 49'ers to beat the Ravens today! Yeah, being big Steeler's fans we just can't have no part of the Raven's winning the Super bowl, so let's go 49'ers," said 49ers fans from Sioux Falls.
 
"I'd like to see the Raven's do it, Ray Lewis go out on a high note, Matt Burke from Minnesota too," says Mick Penkert, a Ravens fan.
 
And just like last year, all of the proceeds from bratwurst sold will go to help cover the medical costs for a local child who is battling brain cancer.
