CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Show dogs delivered stylish performances at the Pride Cheyenne Street Fair on Saturday. 

Pride Cheyenne’s second annual festival rallied Cheyenne residents together to cap off Pride Month. The highlight of the festivities was Cheyenne Animal Shelter’s puppy pageant show, organized by Colorado-based drag queen Khloe Katz. The lively pageant show featured 19 pooches wearing pride-related apparel in an effort to win the hearts of crowd members.

The first Pride Cheyenne festival in 2023 attracted around 600 attendees on a rainy day, according to Pride Cheyenne director Stuart Campbell. He believes this year’s turnout will likely have doubled.
