South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley is hosting the 16th annual Pie Day in the state Capitol in Pierre on Saturday.
The annual event includes free pie, cookies, coffee and ice cream. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. CST and features free entertainment.
Pie Day began when Mark Barnett was attorney general.
Barnett, now a circuit judge, told workers at a polling place that state law prevented them from offering snacks or goodies to voters. Instead, he invited them to Pierre to have pie, and the event has been held each year since.
