Buffalo Roundup Crowd Matches Record

Buffalo Roundup Crowd Matches Record

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — The state of South Dakota says more than 14,000 people took part in the buffalo roundup at Custer State Park, matching crowd records from the previous five years.

Though attendance was steady for the 48th annual roundup on Sept. 27, fewer people attended the arts festival held the following weekend.

Custer State Park Superintendent Matt Snyder says the park is looking at starting the festival on Friday afternoon, immediately following the roundup.

About 350 buffalo that were gathered during the roundup will be sold at the park’s annual auction on Saturday, Nov. 16.

Next year’s roundup is Friday, Sept. 26.
