State archivist Chelle Somsen talks about the 1912 footage of the South Dakota State Fair. To coincide with the running of this year's South Dakota State Fair, the South Dakota Historical Society recently added footage online of the 1912 State Fair to the South Dakota Digital Archives. The film shows fair goers navigating through Huron's dirt streets next to automobiles and horse drawn wagons, the fairgrounds with fair buildings and vendors, along with a merry-go-round, the grandstand and racetrack. The film's run time is 17:34 and a link is found on the State Historical Society's website. Also, Allan Greene, CEO and co-founder of LifeLight Communications, talks about the festival happening this Labor Day weekend. Greene also talks about the festival's growth with this being the third year at the Worthing location. The South Dakota festival is free to attend and has spawned festivals in other places in Texas, Guatemala and Haiti.
