PIERRE, S.D.–South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem was surprised Monday by several hundred vehicles– and one horse– driving past the governor’s residence in a show of support for how she’s handling the COVID-19 pandemic.

Noem was thankful for the gesture by so many Pierre and Fort Pierre area residents…


When it was over, Noem spoke briefly with event organizer John Morris of Fort Pierre. She told him she’d had a tough day, and the show of support was exactly what she needed.

The 20 minute parade included everything from fire trucks to a cement mixer, a heavy duty payloader and a road grader, to business vehicles, personal cars and pickup trucks.
