President Trump to Visit Mount Rushmore

Pyrotechnics display will return after a decade-long absence.

On Friday, President Trump will join South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem at Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills for a celebration in anticipation of the Fourth of July.

The display of pyrotechnics will proceed before the 60-foot tall visages of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt carved across the granite face of the mountain. A military fly-over is also expected.

About 7,500 other spectators will also be there. Visitors will not be told to don face masks or to practice social distancing at the event.

“We will have a large event July 3rd; we told those folks that have concerns that they can stay home,” said Governor Noem, “But for those who want to come and join us, we’ll be giving out free face masks if they choose to wear one, but we won’t be social distancing.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the safety of President Trump and all who gather for the Fourth of July celebration at Mount Rushmore.
  • About the protection for America’s monuments and memorials, and the lessons to be learned from them.
