“Imagine legendary Lakota warrior Crazy Horse sitting tall atop his spirited horse, arm outstretched as he points to the lands of his people. This image, envisioned by sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski in 1948, is being brought to life today by blasting and sculpting crews working year-round. Crazy Horse is the world’s largest mountain carving in progress, standing 563 feet high and stretching 641 feet long. From May through October, Crazy Horse Memorial hosts a variety of special events, so be sure to ask what’s happening when you’re on-site. Depending on the month, you might join one of two volksmarches, shop an artsand-crafts expo, catch a night blast or the Legends in Light® Laser Show, or experience a Native American dance performance. Keep your eyes and ears open for Brulé, the world-renowned musical experience that blends original rock music with traditional Native American dance and instruments. Nearby Towns: Custer (5 miles); Hill City (10.5 miles)”
