Thousands gathered in the Depot Plaza for the final Pancake Breakfast of Cheyenne Frontier Days on Friday, July 26th.
Sam Weinstein of the Cheyenne Kiwanis Club reported 8,154 people were served free breakfast on the final Friday. 9,109 such breakfasts were served on Wednesday morning. Wednesday was the highest count this week, because it was “Cheyenne Day” of course – Laramie County businesses even closed to celebrate and joined in on the breakfast festivities. The Cheyenne Kiwanis Club as well as local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts organize the highly anticipated breakfasts.
This year, more than 100,000 pancakes were served up by community volunteers. The breakfast was made from 5,000 pounds of pancake mix, 3,000 pounds of ham, 9,200 cartons of milk, 520 gallons of coffee, 630 pounds of butter, and 475 gallons of syrup!
