To celebrate this event, Custer has the annual Gold Discovery Days celebration. Included are an Arts & Crafts Fair in the park, bed races, inflatable bouncy houses for the kids, volleyball tournaments, a quilt show, an archery shoot, a 5K Fun Run/Walk, hot air balloon rally, stick horse rodeo, and the largest parade in the Black Hills.
