History will come to life on Saturday at Lake Herman State Park for Herman Luce Pioneer Day.

"This year I was able to get some buckskinners," District Park Manager John Bame said.

Representing the fur trading era, these individuals will display black powder rifles and also demonstrate hatchet throwing. These presenters join others representing other historical periods.

Verna K. Boyd with the South Dakota Humanities Council will not only speak about the Native American history in the area, but will also be preparing a soup using traditional ingredients.

The Old Time Fiddlers will be returning for the second year. Other activities from the pioneer era include butter churning, rope making, Dutch oven cooking, spinning and weaving.

A few vendors will also have products for sale, such as Los Tapatios and Zachary Wicks Photography.

The event is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Park admission is required. However, there is no additional charge.
