43rd Annual Rapid City Pride week closes with clean up

Posted:

Many people and children in Rapid City spent Saturday searching for garbage.

It's an effort that caps off the 43rd Annual Rapid City Pride Week.
 
And the weather couldn't have been better, considering at the beginning of the week we were dealing with nearly 10 inches of snow.

Droves of people were scattered across the city armed with gloves and trash bags.

Cub Scouts who participated say the annual spring clean up effort gets rid of the unsightly things left behind from winter.

It also helps prepare the city for summer guests during the tourist season.

Webelo Scout Isaac Perkins says sometimes they need to take one for the team, and pick up some strange things.

 
"Lots of cigarette butts and all that, and paper bags. Some disgusting things in the river that's for sure. We can kind of go into the bushes and clean up too, so that's fun," says Perkins.
 
Many groups including another Cub Scout pack decided to clean up their portion of the city Friday, while others held off until Saturday.
