Cheyenne Day And The Pancakes Keep On Comin’
Tomorrow is the big day: Cheyenne Day all day at Depot Plaza and we are ready to eat pancakes and rock and funk out all day.
Tomorrow and Friday, thousands of pancakes will fly off the griddle for the last two pancake breakfasts of Cheyenne Frontier Days. Wednesday we get entertainment in the sky and after 12n with Rhythm of The Rails in the Depot Plaza. Nearly 40,000 folks munch to their hearts content. Over 100,000 pancakes are served with 3,000 pounds of ham.
The Kiwanis Club of Cheyenne runs the event with military precision. In fact, the pancake breakfast started in 1952 as a civil defense exercise and was taken over by the Kiwanis Club in 1968. The pancakes are made and distributed through an assembly line manned entirely by volunteers. Assignments range from flipping pancakes to handing out butter and managing the crowd.
We'll see you in the line that moves fast with a passion for pancakes.
