Hot Rods for Hatcheries Car Show raises funds for D.C. Booth Fish Hatchery

The goal of the car show was to raise over $2,000.

SPEARFISH, SD – You wouldn’t normally use something like fish and cars in the same sentence.

But the two items went hand in hand Saturday in Spearfish at the DC Booth Fish Hatchery to raise money for the free family attraction.

Through the Hot Rods for Hatcheries car show, many local residents showed off their best to the public. There were about 70 classic cars on display.

The show was originally organized by Sydney Olson, who organized it four years ago while she was attending Black Hills State University. This year, she’s trying to surpass last year’s goal of raising $2,000.

“I think it’s just an amazing space that we have in Spearfish that is a free family attraction,” Olson said. “I am a mother. I’ve got a couple of kids, and just having somewhere like this to go and be able to just do something for free, when people come to visit, that’s the first place I take them.”
