"Spooky Season" is underway throughout the Sioux Empire. Store shelves are stocked with candy and scary Halloween decorations will soon sit on front yards. Before you know it, zombies will be crawling on the Sioux Falls streets.

The annual Sioux Falls Zombie Walk is set to take place on Saturday, October 28th in the downtown area. Along with the zombies creeping on the streets, they will also be performing Michael Jackson's famous "Thriller" dance to get residents into the scary spirit.

SIoux Falls Zombie Walk 202

It's hard to believe that we are less than a month away from zombies taking over the Sioux Falls streets. The 16th Sioux Falls Zombie Walk will begin at 4 PM on Saturday, October 28th from the 8th & Railroad Center at 401 East Eighth Street.

Before zombies can make their triumphant return to Sioux Falls, any "Runner Zombies" who want to take part in the events need to know some of the frightening details.

The 10 Most Redneck Towns in South Dakota

Are you a 'Redneck?' I guess to some people, all of us in South Dakota are rednecks.

If we use the Jeff Foxworthy Scale of Redneckeness, I have, in fact, been too drunk to fish. So by definition, I am a redneck. And so are many people I know.

Not that being from the country is a bad thing, and it can be fun to poke fun at ourselves.

With that in mind, we found that the folks at RoadSnacks put together a list that claims 'These Are The 10 Most Redneck Cities In South Dakota.'
What is a Redneck?

The dictionary says that a redneck is someone "...who lives in a small town or in the country, especially in the southern U.S., who typically has a working-class job, and who is seen by others as being uneducated and having opinions and attitudes that are offensive."

Well, a few things. First, South Dakota isn't THAT kind of 'south.' We're to the south of North Dakota, but to the north of 'The South.'

Plus that definition sounds awful mean and serious. I thought we were having fun here.

RoadSnacks leaned into the funny, Jeff Foxworthy-based version of a redneck. Then they rounded up select data on places in SD to determine their rankings. RoadSnacks Redneck Criteria:

  • Small towns
  • Least amount of high school graduates
  • Number of bars per city
  • Number of mobile home parks per capita
  • Number of tobacco stores per city
  • Number of places to get fishing gear
  • Number of guns and ammo stores per city
  • Walmarts, Bass Pro Shops, and dollar stores nearby
