Tuesday night, as the final day of the Championship Professional Bull Riding came to a close, Elsie and Clyde Frost walked into the middle of the arena with the World Champion belt buckle in hand. They then presented it to Sage Kimzey, the 2014 Champion. The crowd erupted in roars.
It's pretty hard to walk through the Old Frontier Town at Cheyenne Frontier Days and not notice a man in period attire--complete with gun, wool vest, and square cowboy mustache. The man living the early 21st century was Doug Gumm, gunslinger extraordinare and all-around firearm enthusiast.
Imagine yourself sitting in the stands at the Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo events. The crowd is cheering as a cowboy, riding a prized stock, is launched out of the chute. 8 seconds later, you're on the edge of your seat waiting for the announcer to belt out the cowboy name, followed by the result.
With Cheyenne Frontier Days comes an event that brings out the masses--BREAKFAST. Three times during the Daddy of 'Em All, the Kiwanis Club partners with CFD commiteemen to bring you fresh flapjacks free of charge.
Day two of Championship Bull Riding brought back champions from around the world for another opportunity to make top marks. At the end of the night, more than $500,000 was paid to riders, teams and owners.
If you've come to Cheyenne, you've likely already heard about the cowboy culture--a western state, Union Pacific hub, Cheyenne Frontier Days and the Daddy of 'Em All, Fort Washakie, the Wind River Reservation, and more.
Just outside Portal 11 of Frontier Park lies the Old Frontier Town. If you weren't headed toward the northern end of the grounds, then you'd likely miss it. But with the authentic western wares, games and petting zoo for children, and a chance to meet folks from the chuck wagons, you'll want to make a stop.
Champion bull riders from around the world have been competing for a full year to qualify for the Championship Bull Riding event at Cheyenne Frontier Days. Day One on Monday, July 21 started the competition---with everyone hoping to win the grand prize $100,000.
