Rose Parade

The Great Faces and Great Places of South Dakota in the Rose Parade®

The inspiring stone faces of Mount Rushmore National Memorial can usually only be seen in South Dakota, but this New Year’s Day they’ll be visible on TV screens across the country. South Dakota’s float in the 127th Rose Parade will help celebrate the parade’s “Find Your Adventure” theme. It’s all in honor of the parade’s partnership with the U.S. National Park Service and its centennial celebration. With so many great national and state parks in South Dakota, it’s easy to find adventure while visiting. The float will represent everything that makes South Dakota a great place – dynamic landscape, rich cultural heritage, lively wildlife and, of course, Mount Rushmore, which celebrates the 75th anniversary of its completion in 2016. If you’re looking for adventure, look no further than South Dakota.
