PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — The city of Parkston will be South Dakota’s capital on Aug. 27.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard is expected to participate in a main street walk, business tours around the city and a social hour with residents. He will also host a roundtable with local leaders to address Parkston’s needs.

Parkston Mayor Dave Hoffman says he hopes the governor and First Lady Linda Daugaard find the day fun and informative.

Parkston is located in the southeast part of the state about 70 miles away from Sioux Falls.
