Let's face it, whether you love Cheyenne Frontier Days, or you're ready to leave town once the tourists get here, we're all about to embark on a big party. One of the big days is coming up on Wednesday, July 28th for Cheyenne Day. I didn't hide my enthusiasm for Cheyenne Day by using the word, "bananas". That's probably the best way to describe it because it's going to be, absolutely bananas. Street parties, live music, and so much social interaction, you won't have to talk to people for the rest of the year.

Let's take a look at what we have in store for Cheyenne Day. That way, you'll be able to mentally prepare for a week, knowing what is coming.

Pancake Breakfast

A huge tradition here in the Capital City. People love their pancakes and this might be the biggest attraction for Cheyenne Day. Last year the party moved to The Outlaw Saloon, but this year, it's back at the Downtown Depot. The Pancake Breakfast will be going on from 7am-9am.

CFD Western Art Show

The Western Art Show is really cool, it's actually going on now through August 15th. It'll be open on Cheyenne Day from 8am-7PM.

Wings Over Warren Airshow

After you stuff yourself with pancakes, head over to Warren Airforce Base for the annual airshow. The Thunderbirds will be there, doing all their crazy stunts and more!

Cheyenne Frontier Days Midway

Laramie County residents get free admission on Cheyenne Day! Once you start getting hungry after your pancake scarfing, you can make your way to the Midway to continue the smorgasbord. The Midway opens at 10:30am until Midnight.

Dillinger's Live Music 

Dillinger's is set to have some live music from 12pm-10pm on Cheyenne Day, according to Visit Cheyenne. I'll keep you posted on bands playing as they release them.
