PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The Mount Rushmore mascots will join in on the celebrations for South Dakota’s 125th birthday.

The oversize caricatures of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln - whose faces are on Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills - will visit Watertown on Aug. 17 to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood.

The celebration will include train rides, horseshoe tournament, a time capsule and a beard contest. There will also be an old-time classroom on display and an old-time photo booth.

The event is scheduled for 2 p.m. at the Joy Ranch.
