As a host city for the Bassmaster Elite Series, Pierre will do a festival in conjunction with the weigh-ins at Steamboat Park. The Great Outdoors Festival will be held from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm on Saturday, June 30 & Sunday, July 1, 2018 in Steamboat Park. Activities will include: kayaking, paddleboard contests, backyard bass, fly tying, touch tanks, Wii ski and aquarium. And that’s not all—there will be an inflatable joust, laser tag and a King of the hill 50 x 50 inflatable. The Great Outdoor Festival will have delicious food from local restaurants in the Pierre and Fort Pierre area, a beverage tent and local entertainment. It’s fun for all ages! And we’re not done after the weigh-in is over—in the evenings there will be events at the Pierre Trappers ballgame, downtown Pierre Street, and in Fort Pierre. For more information, call the Pierre Area Chamber of Commerce office – (605) 224-7361.
