Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo Attendance Up, Night Show Tickets Down
Cheyenne Frontier Days officials say 534,519 people attended CFD events this year, a number they say is "in line with previous years."
Rodeo attendance was up slightly this year at 94,267 compared to 93,238 last year. But fewer people attended the night shows this year, with an official attendance figure of 107,445, compared to last year's record number of 118,123.
Frontier Days officials say 78,500 people attended the parade this year. That number is presumably an estimate since no tickets are sold to the parades.
Officials say 24,764 meals were served at three pancake breakfasts and 49,181 people visited the Indian Village. This year's Air Force Thunderbird Air Show was canceled due to bad weather.
A CFD news release says this year's "Military Monday" had the second highest attendance ever, second only to the 100th-anniversary edition of Cheyenne Frontier Days. But the release doesn't cite a specific attendance number for that day.
