A long-time Cheyenne Frontier Days tradition resumes on Sunday morning [July 16] with the annual CFD cattle drive.

This year 550 head of Corriente steers will be driven from a pasture north of Cheyenne along I-25 and through the streets to Frontier Park.

The cattle drive is considered the official start of CFD, according to Rodeo Chairman Mitch Carter. Carter says the cattle drive dates back to the very earliest days of Frontier Days when cattle from surrounding ranches were driven into town for the rodeo. Timed slack events get underway at Frontier Park on Monday at 11 a.m.

The drive will start at about 7:15 a.m. at the intersection of I-25 and Horse Creek Road north of the city. Approximate arrival times at the following areas are as scheduled:
