Fourth of July weekend demands patriotic plans, and what’s more all-American than a barbecue with Mount Rushmore as your backdrop? For just one day, it doesn’t require a road trip to Mount Rushmore to salute George, Tom, Teddy and Abe. South Dakota’s Tourism is hauling a 22-foot tall model of Mount Rushmore and dropping it in Millennium Park for a day-long celebration and barbecue for the first 1,000 people to arrive. Fill up on buffalo burgers and dogs, indulge in a scoop of vanilla ice cream from Thomas Jefferson’s original recipe and conquer the climbing wall modeled after Custer State Park’s famed Needles area.
