Dedicate a Wreath on Capitol Avenue in Downtown Cheyenne
This holiday season, the Old West Holiday celebration is coming to downtown Cheyenne and as part of the festivities, you can take part by dedicating a wreath to a loved one along Capitol Avenue.
While staying socially distant, you can still participate in the Old West Holiday festivities set to kick off this Saturday (November 21st) as light poles up and down Capitol Avenue will be decorated with wreaths. The wreaths will be delivered on horseback and then local officials will hang those wreaths before festive lighting will give downtown Cheyenne a new look at approximately 5:30 p.m.
And with those wreaths, in memory of a loved one, you can donate a wreath to help show holiday spirit from your own family, as well as helping to celebrate the holiday season.
Those wreaths will be lighted and will each have a gift tag recognizing your donation. You can take part by clicking the link here.
