Father’s Day Brunch at the D.C. Booth Historic Fish Hatchery

Spearfish is a Black Hills destination well-known for jaw-dropping scenery and outdoor adventure, making it an ideal spot for some Father’s Day fun. On Sunday, June 16th starting at 9 a.m., the town’s D.C. Booth Historic Fish Hatchery is hosting its annual event that celebrates dad, starting with a hearty brunch provided by Ruby’s Garden. Afterwards, join in on an educational, interactive scavenger hunt that will lead you through the hatchery grounds. Once you complete the scavenger hunt, take your sheet into the Pond Shop and receive a free cup of fish food. Feeding the many fish, large and small, throughout the hatchery is an activity enjoyed by young and old. Tickets can be purchased the day of the event at Ruby’s Garden, which is located behind the D.C. Booth House. For more information, contact the Booth Society at (605) 642-7730 ext. 221.

With Spearfish being located about an hour from the Powder House Lodge, you can make the most of your trip by taking a cruise through Spearfish Canyon, a must-stop destination during any Black Hills vacation.

Booth Historic Fish Hatchery up close and personal.
