Patrol car

Kids get to examine the tools of the trade with the SD Highway Patrol

Saturday’s balmy weather made for perfect ice skating conditions at Wyler Park, and conditions were set for fun at the other Winterfest Olympic locations as well. The Belle Fourche Chamber’s Winterfest campaign designed to help businesses create fun winter activities and events hosted its first Winterfest Olympic games last week. Ski’s Pizzeria held a cribbage tournament, Grap’s Burgers & Brews had an intense battle of cornhole, while Patty’s Place put on a Jenga competition. Prizes were awarded the winners and runners up at each tournament.

Down at Wyler park, Drug Screening Services co-hosted a Family Ice Skating day with the SD Highway Patrol. Kids and families came to enjoy the ice and get an up-close look at a real patrol car. Drug Screening Services served hot cocoa and cookies, saying ‘Being drug free is sweet!’

The Winterfest Olympics were also sponsored by Wells Fargo and Black Hills Energy.
