BURNS, Wyo. — Burns may be a sleepy town of under 400 people in eastern Laramie County, but Saturday was when droves of visitors had it beaming with energy.

The town hosted the 2022 edition of Burns Day on Saturday — held traditionally during the second weekend of June — in a one-day event that included plenty of live entertainment, food and drink, a parade and numerous other activities on display all throughout the town’s streets.

Volunteers from the Burns Lions Club, which helped resurrect the event in 2021 after about a decade during which it wasn’t held, were ever-present in their blue button-downs all over the town.

Below is a Cap City News photo gallery of the event, with photos taken by reporter Briar Napier and photographer Lisa Hushbeck:
