What I Was Told Before My First Cheyenne Frontier Days … Vs What I Found

Before my first ever Cheyenne Frontier Days, I got advice from veterans of The Daddy of ‘Em All.  After each of these things I was told, next comes what I really found. 

It takes about four hours to get used to the smell of cow patties. After that its not so bad. … It does not take a whole 4 hours to get used to the smell. It takes 5 hours.

If you love western art shows, this is also the daddy of them all. … True, and if you love turquoise, it’s like being in the Southwest.

There is no need for a cowboy hat to have a good time. You’re accepted as you are. … Yes, but I felt like I was even more accepted when I did have a cowboy hat.

Share half of a funnel cake and choose food wisely or you could get sick. … No funnel cake, but I got talked into trying a bite of a fried oreo. It took hours for that taste to go away.

If you’re on a budget, there are events that cost zero, like the Indian Village Dances. … Yes, but now I take as much cash as I can. It’s a once a year splurge. 

Pick at least one of the downtown parades, and one of the pancake breakfasts at Depot Plaza. … I never went to either. I stayed in my office downtown and worked. For the Saturday parade, I stayed out of downtown.

Don’t worry about trying to park close. Take your time. Also forget parking downtown on days of parades and breakfasts. … Well, now we can Uber in. No parking period.

Do not park in a driveway of a Cheyenne homeowner. They don’t usually like that. … Yes, I took that to heart. And I did see a tow truck stalking the hood.
