125,000 tickets requested for Mount Rushmore fireworks

June 17, 2020 - 5:39 AM

RAPID CITY, S.D. - More than 125,000 tickets were requested for the 7,500 spots available for the Fourth of July fireworks at Mount Rushmore, which President Donald Trump plans to attend, according to South Dakota tourism officials.

The National Park Service held a lottery for the tickets last week. The winners were chosen at random and have been notified.

South Dakotans submitted the most applications for tickets at 40,575, the Argus Leader reported.

Unlike Trump's upcoming rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, tickets for the Mount Rushmore fireworks don't include a liability waiver if attendees become ill with COVID-19, the state Department of Tourism said.
