I packed up my tent and gear early this morning so that I could attend the Boy Scout’s Pancake Breakfast in Cheyenne, Wyoming. I was told that it’s a free event and a “must-see” for newbies to the Cheyenne Frontier Days.
How big could it be? Well, after I parked my car and walked three blocks to the event, I was handed a free bottle of water and ushered down the street. Then I was told the line wrapped around the block. I was offered another bottle of water and greeted with a tray of free cups of coffee. The line moved quickly. The stores were open and ready for business and a band was playing music. This all started by 7 am!
When I arrived at the head of the line, it was an assembly line. I was given a plate and fork and a Kiwanis member told me to keep moving. Then pancakes were placed on my plate by a woman followed by another person handing out pats of butter. My cakes were topped with syrup by a man pouring from a jug and I was directed to the final stations of ham, coffee, and milk. Bench seating was set up for thousands to enjoy the feast while listening to a band playing. Gotta love the fiddle before 8 am!
Did I forgot to mention “The Flap Jack Show” going on? The photos will tell that story.
Summer festivals and events remind me of why the USA is a great place to live and enjoy life!
