HURON, S.D. (AP) - The 2015 South Dakota State Fair kicks off Thursday and runs through Monday.

The annual event in Huron showcases South Dakota’s agriculture industry, which generates $25.6 billion in annual economic activity and employs more than 115,000 South Dakotans.

Poultry is typically one of the ag aspects featured at the annual event, but all live bird exhibitions have been suspended due to the Avian Influenza outbreak earlier this year.

Thursday’s events focus on value added agriculture, with specialty crop mini-seminars for local food production. The fair is partnering with the South Dakota Dairy Producers to hold an ice cream social at 3 p.m.
