World Hoop Day Celebration at Booth Fish Hatchery
The Booth Society, in partnership with Spinchronicity of Spearfish, is sponsoring World Hoop Day Oct. 6 on the grounds of the D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery and Archives. The event runs from 1 to 3 p.m. and is free to the public. Mary Temple and other performers will provide music.
World Hoop Day is a “worldwide celebration of play and generosity, with the goal of uniting the world through the joy of hoops and community support for local children’s charities,” said Amber Waldburger, owner of Spinchronicity. Waldburger offers hoop classes in Deadwood and “plays with kids at Rapid City’s Main Square during the concert series” and sells her specialty hula hoops for adults and children throughout the Black Hills. Waldburger wanted to hold World Hoop Day at the Hatchery, she said, because “it is the single best asset in Spearfish.”
World Hoop Day is being celebrated internationally on Oct. 5; however, because of scheduling conflicts at the Hatchery, it will be held on Oct. 6 in Spearfish. Waldburger is creating a variety of special hoops to sell at the event, with all proceeds going to the Fish Hatchery. Because Waldburger is donating time and material, the hoops, which normally sell for between $15 and $55, will be $10 for children and $15 for adults.

“We are happy to work with Amber on this project and look forward to a fun-filled afternoon of hooping,” said April Gregory, executive director of the Booth Society, Inc, the nonprofit fisheries friends group of D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery and Archives.
Light refreshments will be served.
