Fireworks at the National Memorial is not an annually occurring event. As they will not be happening this year, you can still celebrate Independence Day, and the days surrounding it, in the Black Hills and Badlands with some of the best Fourth of July celebrations found anywhere in America. From Old West shootouts, cook-offs, car shows, live music and ice cream socials, to farmers markets, reenactments, arts & crafts vendors and more, America's birthday party is going on in South Dakota and you’re all invited.
