Cheyenne Frontier Days will drive nearly 550 head of Corriente steers from the pasture north of Cheyenne to Frontier Park today.
The annual ritual is a prelude to the official start of the 123rd annual “Daddy of ‘em All,” which starts Friday and runs through July 28.
The cattle drive begins at approximately 7:15 a.m. at the intersection of Interstate 25 and Horse Creek Road north of the city. It then moves along I-25 on the eastern frontage road to Hynds Boulevard, turns south to Central Avenue, to Kennedy Road, and then moves from Kennedy Road to Carey Avenue and into Frontier Park.
Approximate arrival times at the following areas are as follows:
- I-25 and Horse Creek Road/Iron Mountain Road, 7:15-7:45a.m.
- I-25 frontage road and Riding Club Road, 8:15a.m.
- I-25 and Vandehei Avenue, 8:45a.m.
- I-25 and Central Avenue, 9-9:15a.m.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol will not allow parking along I-25 at any time during the cattle drive. Central Avenue between Kennedy Road and Hynds Boulevard will be closed while the cattle are on Central.
