I have not been too involved with Frontier Days this year, but I did step out of the office and take a few photos on Tuesday as the parade went past our front door. While the parade changes very little from year to year, it is still worth taking the time to see the beautiful animals, carriages, floats, tractors, and listening to the bands.
Each year the ambulance is followed by the hearse. I guess the medical care given in the ambulance never improves.
Today (Wednesday) our office staff continued on with the tradition of attending the pancake breakfast even though it was raining. The weather definitely kept the crowd down. We typically arrive at the office at 6:30 A.M. to make the walk down to the Depot. We eat breakfast with thousands of others and then head back to work by 8:00 A.M. The weather dampened the exuberance of the event this year, but we need the rain. Thus, it makes it difficult to complain about getting wet. The photos below capture some of the surrounding elements while we were at the breakfast.
This street is usually filled with three or four lines up and down in both lanes.

The Plains Hotel--a lot of history in that building.
The Cheyenne Depot is the gathering area for a lot of events in downtown Cheyenne.
