The Presidents Visited NYC

by Katlyn Richter on December 6, 2011 · 1 comment

The Presidents of Mount Rushmore recently visited New York Cityto celebrate the 70th anniversary of the completion of Mount Rushmore National Memorial. South Dakota also had a float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade – Mount Rushmore’s American Pride. Neil Diamond performed on the float this year, and did a fantastic job. He sang “America” on the float. His songs had the crowd engaged and singing along. What a great choice for this float, the song and the backdrop of the fauxMount Rushmore on the float moved the crowd!

The Presidents had another exciting element to their trip to New York City. They are giving away an exclusive vacation to see the real Mount Rushmorein South Dakota! It’s a vacation for four, with airline tickets provided by American Airlines, rental car, lodging, and great choices of attractions to visit while on vacation.
