Capitol Hours Extended for King of Hearts Event


Pierre, SD- The state Capitol will be open for extended hours to accommodate photo opportunities for students before the Job’s Daughters King of Hearts event.


The Capitol will be open until 8:00 P.M. (CT) on Sunday, February 16, 2020 for those students and families wishing to take pictures in the Capitol prior to the start of the Job’s Daughters King of Hearts Dance.


“Knowing the long-standing tradition of taking photos on the grand staircase in the Capitol’s rotunda prior to events such as prom and King of Hearts, we worked with Capitol Protective Services to keep the Security Checkpoint open later than usual to accommodate for this event and others like it,” said Bureau of Administration Commissioner Scott Bollinger.


Arrangements can be made for events by contacting Joan Henderson with Buildings and Grounds at 605.773.3344. Please allow at least 10 days advanced notice. Standard security procedures and rules will be enforced. FAQs including a list of prohibited items can be found here. For more information visit our website: https://boa.sd.gov/.
