Poll: Should The City Continue To Present Cheyenne Superday?
The mayor says the event, which is co-sponsored by HollyFrontier, is becoming increasingly expensive, with costs for overtime for city employees to put up tents and booths, organize the event and clean up afterward. There are also costs involved for hiring performers, renting games and other associated expenses.
Mayor Orr says it's possible the event has run its course after 37 years, or that perhaps private sponsors and volunteers can continue Superday on their own.
But supporters of the event say it's a long-time Cheyenne tradition that is worth keeping. They say it provides local kids and families with an inexpensive and fun event, and that summer in Cheyenne just wouldn't be the same without it.
Some supporters on social media have also argued that the cost to the city of Superday is tiny compared to the money the city spends on Cheyenne Frontier Days every year, but no one complains about city funds spent in association with CFD.
So what do you think? Has the time come to pull the plug on Superday?
Or do you think it's a Cheyenne tradition worth keeping? We'll publish or poll results in a few days.
