This year the topic is South Dakota weather and the various pictures seem to cover just about every weather condition that occurs in SD. These included lightning, tornados, and snow. Great pieces of art.

So lucky to have something that draws people into our community. Great history with a hopping little main street right outside the door. Best popcorn balls in the country! A must stop for all visitors!

I remember this place from 60 years ago, so had to stop by when passing through Mitchell. It is still impressive, but not as much as I remember. It is unique, and worth an hour of your time if you are close by.

I've been wanting to see this place for years! It really lives up to the mystique--a structure decorated annually with dried-corn and -grains with unique designs. One can stop by and casually survey the exterior, but why not go inside and take advantage of the...More
