The oversize caricatures of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln — whose faces are on Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills — will visit Watertown on Aug. 17 to celebrate South Dakota's statehood.

The celebration will include train rides, horseshoe tournament, a time capsule and a beard contest. There will also be an old-time classroom on display and an old-time photo booth.

The event is scheduled for 2 p.m. at the Joy Ranch.
