I haven't played a carnival game since I was a kid. But even in 20 years, I can still remember the rush of trying to win, handing over cash to try again, and walking around whatever carnival grounds clutching a cheap stuffed animal in my arms.
In the month leading up to Cheyenne Frontier Days, Townsquare Media Cheyenne, Laramie and Casper held an Arctic Cat key contest---one lucky winner from each location would receive a key to a bright green Wildcat Trail XT.
They do more than just hold up your britches. Belt buckles are identifiers for cowboys--trophies, awards, symbols of pride and expertise. They're qualifications. And at the Daddy of 'Em All, each cowboy has something on display.
Yesterday night Dierks Bentley performed on the Red Rocks stage to a sold out crowd. John Pardi, Chase Rice and Chris Young opened the show with a variety of pyrotechnics, styles and witty anecdotes for the crowd.
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.
