Not the news country music and rodeo fans were hoping for, but for the first time it's 124 year history, there will be no Cheyenne Frontier Days this year...
Cheyenne Mayor Marian Orr told The Associated Press event organizers decided the risk of spreading the virus was too great for the more than 140,000 people who typically visit the city for Frontier Days over the last two weeks in July.
“What this pandemic means is we just can’t come together,” Orr said Wednesday. “We really have to stay apart so we can come together again sooner rather than later. It’s clear that we just aren’t going to be ready for this.”
There is a news conference scheduled for 3 p.m. MNT. today (May 27th).
