Looking for stuff to do in the Fall?

Seasons are changing, and so are people’s routines and activities. Let’s take a look at what Brookings and other surrounding areas have to offer this fall.

Labor Day (September 7th, 2017)

Known as, “The last long holiday weekend” for some, Labor Day brings that much needed time for one last barbeque, or get-together with family and friends. Invite people over for fun potluck in your backyard or one of the many parks in Brookings, Aurora & Volga! Perhaps with a favorite football team theme?

Kids Fun Run (September 23rd, 2017)

Kids always have a lot of energy, so let them run their little heart out at the Kids Fun Run held at the Campanile on the campus of South Dakota State University from 10:45am – 12:00pm. It’s free for kids 12 and under. Medals and T-shirts for all finishers! Parents and guardians are welcome to participate.

National Comic Book Day (September 25th, 2017)

What were once bookstores filled with a few comics, and now comic book stores with a few books, Comic Book Day provides the perfect excuse to “nerd-out!” We all have our favorites, so make sure to get your friends together and visit some of these places: Brookings Book Company Uncanny Comics

SDSU Jackrabbit Football

Brookings Blizzard 

Hard to think about “blizzard” right now, but take in a NAHL Brookings Blizzard Hockey game! They take the ice September 3rd at 7:05pm at Larson Ice Center. Download the full 2017 – 2018 schedule at                                                                                   

Brookings, Volga, Aurora, and other surrounding communities in South Dakota are perfect places to consider making your permanent residence. Not to mention, when you come home at the end of the day, you’re coming home to your home.
