Organizers are also boasting upgraded production quality with new lighting and audio systems; a new VIP Garden with seating for sponsors and other community members; a rotating variety of food vendors; outdoor team games; and new signage through the event & Plaza.

In addition, the Community Recreation & Events team also unveiled “Fridays EXTENDED,” designed to complement the traditional Fridays on the Plaza programming. The Fridays EXTENDED does not actually take place on a Friday, but works to compliment the Friday series.

According to a written statement sent to media, the Fridays EXTENDED was originally known in Cheyenne as “Rhythm by the Rails.” The 2-day concert series will be held during Cheyenne Frontier Days as an additional activity for guests in town.

A variety of food vendors are scheduled for Fridays EXTENDED, as well as beer sales for those aged 21+.
