SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The first “thank you parade” for Smithfield Foods employees was held early Wednesday morning in Sioux Falls. 

Organizers held up thank-you signs for workers heading to the plant. The second part of the parade is planned at shift change at 3 p.m. Wednesday. 

Smithfield reopened last week after closing for more than three weeks after it became one of the top hot spots with the coronavirus.
