Custer State Park’s 2013 Buffalo Roundup will be held on Friday, September 27.

Existing publications advertise the annual event as being held “the last Monday in September.” That will not be the case next year.

“We’ve decided to hold the roundup on a Friday next year. While attendance has been very good, we’d like to see even more people come,” said Joe Kafka, press secretary to Gov. Dennis Daugaard.

“We’re always trying to make more of a splash with the Roundup, and we hope this will help us build on past successes,” Kafka said.

Changing the day of the Buffalo Roundup to Friday also could prove popular from a convenience standpoint, he said.

“With the Roundup on a Friday, most people would not have to go back to work the next day,” Kafka said.

In the past, many of those attending the Buffalo Roundup on Mondays either had to go back to work on Tuesday or took an extra day off.
