Cheyenne Police are once again reminding people that most fireworks are illegal within the city limits of Cheyenne.

CPD Spokeswoman Alex Farkas gave Townsquare Media the following statement:

We encourage everyone to enjoy celebrating the Fourth of July holiday - but to do so with safety top of mind. The Cheyenne Police Department would like to remind citizens that the use of consumer fireworks within the City of Cheyenne limits is not allowed on private property. They are also prohibited on public property which includes parks, schools, streets, alleys, and public right-of-ways. Violators found in possession of fireworks will have them confiscated and could be issued a citation with a possible fine.

Instead, we encourage citizens to enjoy the annual fireworks show hosted by the City of Cheyenne and Cheyenne Frontier Days on July 4. The celebration is designed to be visible from various locations across the city. For more information, please visit:

There will also be an increased law enforcement presence throughout the city – the DUI Command Vehicle will be posted to watch for impaired drivers and officers will be assigned to watch for fireworks-related offenses.

Fireworks are also illegal in Laramie. But like Cheyenne, Laramie has a public fireworks show on the Fourth of July.

The Most Expensive Neighborhoods in Cheyenne

Cheyenne, like any city, is made up of many different neighborhoods. While none of them are as famous as SoHo in New York City or Five Points in Denver, Wyoming's capital city has about 20 neighborhoods that its nearly 65 thousand residents live in.

Neighborhood Scout scoured the information on the Chey-town neighborhoods that make up the 32.37 square miles of the city to find where the most expensive places are to live. We're talking about real estate here, not the price of milk or anything. That kind of stuff is pretty uniform across the city.
