Mayor Orr Speaks on postponing Superday until 2021

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now)- The decision to postpone Superday has been made as the event won't happen in 2020. Superday is an annual event that brings in approximately 15,000 people to celebrate National Parks and Recreation month.

"In looking at the guidelines and different phases of being able to bring our community back together in large settings like Superday, we realized that it was not going to be prudent for us to do so in July," Cheyenne Mayor Marian Orr said.

City officials met as a team and a group last week with an outline explaining why the decision was made. There were also considerations to postponing Superday for late August or early September. However, Mayor Orr and city officials figured that it would be better for everyone to hold off until 2021 for a special Superday.

"We have had to do that, we needed to make the decision sooner rather than later for the sake of the sponsors as well as the vendors," Orr said.

Mayor Orr says city officials are looking for ways to bring smaller and separate venues later in the summer. According to Orr, the cancellation of Superday wouldn't effect Wyoming's economy in a negative way. She believes there's still ways to highlight recreational opportunities in Cheyenne, and is still looking for ways to do that.
