Cheyenne Daddy of Em All Parade
The Cheyenne Rodeo began in 1890 and in the one hundred and ten ensuing years they have definitely learned how to put on a parade. This parade lasted an hour and, with marching bands ( the girls in blue and white hail from Chicago), historic old vehicles and wagons, clowns, Shriners in miniature cars,vets, army, navy and air force, Wyoming government officials and, of course, the rodeo princesses, queens, cowboys and rough riders, it was spectacular.
From time to time the famous Air Force Thunderbirds forced all eyes skyward with their gasp worthy ariel acrobatics. I couldn't help thinking that these fighter pilots and the bull and bronc riders must be from the same tribe.
