The first of three Cheyenne Frontier Days Pancake Breakfasts is scheduled for Monday from 7-9 am in the Cheyenne Depot Plaza.

Pancake breakfasts have been a CFD tradition since the early 1950s.

Besides offering a free meal to Cheyenne Frontier Days visitors and Cheyenne residents, the breakfasts serve as a Kiwanis Club of Cheyenne drill in feeding large numbers of people in case of a natural disaster or other large-scale emergency situation.

Wednesday will be Cheyenne Day at Cheyenne Frontier Days, and that day typically draws the biggest crowds for the breakfasts, with the number of breakfasts served ranging over 15,000 some years.

Among those who have helped serve the breakfasts in recent years is Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon, who helped cook the flapjacks last year (above photo).
