Daddy of 'em All
Cheyenne Frontier Days, the world's largest outdoor rodeo and western celebration, is a ten-day spectacle in July that's referred to as the "Daddy of 'em All." Held every summer in Cheyenne, Wyoming since 1897, it includes free pancake breakfasts, downtown parades, an Indian village, rodeo competitions, a carnival, and evening concerts featuring top country and rock musical performances called "Frontier Nights." Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) sanctioned events held daily gather almost 1,200 contestants who vie for over $1 million in money and prizes. Attendance now exceeds 200,000 fans from across the country longing for a piece of the "Wild West."
