CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Nothing could slow down the Cheyenne Hispanic Festival this weekend.

Despite rainy and chilly conditions that made for a bit of a drab day across Cheyenne on Saturday, the environment at the Cheyenne Depot Plaza — where the festival was held — remained bubbly and lively as those of Hispanic origin in the city socialized and celebrated their culture in the annual event that’s been held now for over a decade.
