A far-flung extended family has been operating Shorty's Hot Dog Stand at the South Dakota State Fair since 1927. They've celebrated their annual rendezvous as a family reunion for many years but they've finally decided that 94 years is enough. They shuttered the little shed at the end of the 2021 fair and plan to meet elsewhere in 2022.
