CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - As Cheyenne Frontier Days gets ready to kick off in less than two weeks, the Daddy of ‘Em All is working to keep the community safe and healthy.

“First things first - We want to emphasize the importance of vaccination. We want all of our volunteers, all of the community to be able to participate in our great event. And the best way to ensure you can participate is to vaccinate,” said Mike Smith, Chairman of Public Relations for Cheyenne Frontier Days.

CFD partnered with Cheyenne Regional Medical Center to provide rapid-testing at the event site.

The event will also implement digital paying options are paperless ticketing so guests can minimize physical contact.

CFD is planning on a record-breaking crowd and is taking extra security precautions.

“We are coming up with the same kind of measures that are industry standard for a lot of events people are used to seeing. That includes our metal detector systems at security checkpoints. We will also be employing some new shape detection devices throughout the park as well in some of our higher traffic areas. We have also instituted a clear bag policy to limit those searches - all bags coming in to Frontier Park must be searched,” said Smith.

Smith says there are a variety of clear bags available for purchase through CFD and Blue Federal Credit Union will also be providing clear bags.

He says the best way to stay safe is to use common sense. Stay home if you’re sick, wash your hands and come ready for the new security and health protocols.

“We just hope to make this go as smoothly as possible folks will prepare ahead of time, make sure they know what they can and can’t bring in the park and get here early to try to accommodate the convenience of our customer as well as ensuring everyone out here at Cheyenne Frontier Days is safe and secure.”
