Crazy Horse takes holiday cheer on the road
The Crazy Horse Memorial’s float participated in the community holiday parades at Hill City on Friday, Nov. 29 and Rapid City Saturday, Nov. 30. Crazy Horse Memorial was the non-profit winner for the category of Creative Sparkle for the Memorial’s float in the Festival of Lights parade in Rapid City.
This year’s design features hand-cut and painted elf figures and giant-size gift boxes. The decorations surround the sleigh carrying the Memorial’s chief jolly elf, Adam Ziolkowski, the son of Crazy Horse sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski and Crazy Horse Memorial CEO Ruth Ziolkowski.
The Crazy Horse float won the “best music” award at the 2012 Custer Christmas Parade for its theme, “Dashing through the Snow.”
