Garth Brooks was at the unveiling of this statue last Friday. I watched the video of the unveiling, but yesterday was my first time of actually seeing the statue up close.
The base of the sculpture is in the shape of an arrowhead, the trademark of Cheyenne Frontier Days.
The setting, the carnival rides, the multitude of shops, the parades, the pancake breakfasts, the concerts, the cowboys, the cowgirls, the rodeo, and all of the volunteers and sponsors come together for a fabulous ten days.
The horses and livestock are a key ingredient to the festivities.
As folks leave the stands at the conclusion of the rodeo, work begins immediately to clean up, water down the arena to control the dust, and hundreds of other details to get ready for the next event. The amount of organizational work that goes into these ten days is astounding. As I continue to learn more about the many facets of this operation, I am truly amazed at the dedication and expertise that is exhibited.
