Looking for something fun to do this summer? How about traveling to De Smet, SD to take in the annual Laura Ingalls Wilder Pageant!
According to the pageant's website, over a hundred volunteers work together each year to present a family-friendly drama based on the writings of Laura Ingalls Wilder. This year will be The Long Winter (my favorite of all the Little House books).
The 2009 dates are as follows:
July 10, 11, 12 July 17, 18, 19 July 24, 25, 26
There are also pre-show activities. The website also includes a page on the history of the pageant and a photo gallery.
Step back in time to when the West was being settled by pioneering men and women like the Ingalls family.
