CHEYENNE, Wyo. — It’s a sweet tradition (literally) at Cheyenne Frontier Days, and the first Pancake Breakfast of the 2022 festival got going Monday morning with plenty of hungry attendees lining up for a bite.

Held thrice annually beginning at 7 a.m. on the Monday, Wednesday and second Friday of Frontier Days, respectively, the event is officially hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Cheyenne but has plenty of volunteers helping out from other organizations to serve upwards of 10,000 breakfast-goers at the Cheyenne Depot Plaza for each iteration of the event.

Per the Frontier Days website, more than 100,000 pancakes, 520 gallons of coffee and 475 gallons of syrup, among other items, are made and used at no cost to the attendees, who enjoyed their meals under sunny skies and some live music Monday morning.

Below is a Cap City News photo gallery of the event:
