Deputy South Dakota Tourism Director Wanda Goodman estimates this summer’s Independence Day celebration and fireworks show at Mount Rushmore National Memorial generated $2 million dollars in direct spending for the state’s economy. 

      Goodman recently told the state Tourism Advisory Board the July 3 event also generated $22 million in advertising value for South Dakota because of free media coverage surrounding President Trump’s participation.
