CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Although not as longstanding a tradition as Cheyenne Frontier Days itself, the Grand Parades are a staple component of the nine-day festivities.

According to Ruthanne Hubbard, Chairman of the Parades Committee, 2021 CFD Parades have seen a record turnout. The downtown parades feature local businesses, clubs and organizations, school children and more.

“Well, our parades are, to me, always wonderful. They are full of history and lots of character. Things that you don’t normally see in a typical parade but definitely western and definitely historic,” said Hubbard.

Hubbard said the CFD parades feature the longest section of horse-drawn carriages in the world.
