on june 26, 1998 ruth ziolkowski, wife of sculptor korczak ziolkowski, celebrated her 72nd birthday. traditionally a night blast is held in celebration of the day. in 1998, hundreds of visitors gathered on the verandah at crazy horse memorial to wish mrs. ziolkowski a happy birthday with cameras in hand and on tripods to photograph the spectacular blast and annual event.
hundreds of visitors also gathered in the newly expanded parking lot to witness the blast. along a fence line, which could have been labeled camera row, people set up tripods and placed cameras on wooden fence posts holding the cameras steady, to capture a life-long memory.
the following night blast was on september 6, 1998 which was a dual blast commemorating the anniversaries of crazy horse's death in 1877 and the birth of korczak ziolkowski in 1908.
