What are The Best Things About Cheyenne Frontier Days?

Cheyenne Frontier Days is one of the biggest summer festivals in the country, maybe even the world. Yes, they bring huge concerts to the area each summer, but if you ask those close to the event, especially those who are directly involved in making this massive yearly event happen, it's so much more. The gigantic acts that play the world-famous CFD stage are as good as they get, but Cheyenne Frontier Days is so much more than just massive live shows... While we continue to highlight another CFD attraction this week, let's first take a look at this year's concert line-up:

Top 5 Things About Cheyenne Frontier Days

Narrowing down our 5 favorite things when it comes to CFD is pretty hard because it's one of our favorite events each summer. There are so many great and special things about this event but for the sake of this countdown, let's talk about number three, the world-famous Rodeos!

I took my son to his first Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo on Saturday and it was a blast! From the bulls to the bucking horses, the real cowboys and cowgirls put on a show like no other in front of a crowd of about 17,000. That's the biggest Rodeo crowd you'll see anywhere in the area for sure.

Now that we've marked off food, carnival fun, and the Rodeo... What's left? The countdown will continue here...

25 Must See Pix From Taylor Swift's Eras Tour Stop In Denver

From the "countdown to midnights" to start her show, to an incredible firework-filled ending, Taylor Swift's Eras Tour set the new standard for how a live show should be. I can't put into words just how fantastic this show was. Nobody loves their fans more than Taylor and her team and this show was proof of that. Here are some of our favorite pictures from the show from the couple of different areas my family saw night one from.

The Rush Events Center & Amusement Park Returns To Evan's, Colorado

Located on Highway 85 in Evans, Colorado, the newly branded Rush Events Center & Amusement Park is back and ready to entertain an entirely new generation of families for years to come. A local couple, Ron and Cindy Harper, watched what was once a Northern Colorado staple sit abandoned for over a decade and decided to do something about it, and bought the old property. They have worked countless hours since that time to restore it to its glory days, and wow, did they ever. Bigger and Better is a complete understatement. 

This Local Chicken Restaurant Is Hands Down The Best In Colorado

Since 1963, The Wishbone Family Restaurant has been serving up some of the best food in the state of Colorado. Their specialty though, as you can tell by the name, is chicken. And boy, is it good!
