Summer fun kicks off at Wilson Park

Posted:

Handmade arts and crafts, delicious food, and of course wagon rides can only mean one thing in Rapid City: summer festivals.   

This weekend, booths and tents cover Wilson Park for the 37th Annual West Boulevard Summer Festival.

All of the art at the festival is handmade, and coordinators say there are no duplicate food vendors.

Those wanting a tour through the historical district can jump in a wagon pulled by two horses.

Between 5,000 and 10,000 people are expected to attend this year.

Festival Coordinator Jane Holeton says it's a way for the community to get together.   

"Well if you enjoy fun come on down," said Holeton. "And there's people that come every year, its kind of a place were they meet their friends and its a little community building."

Each year, the West Boulevard Neighborhood Association sponsors the festival, and gives all the proceeds back into the community.
