The third of four Cheyenne Frontier Days Grand Parades is in the books.

Under blue skies and ideal weather conditions, thousands of paradegoers on Thursday morning cheered a procession of marching bands, politicians, cowboys, Indian dance groups, people in historic garb and many others. The parade carries on a tradition of CFD Grand Parades that dates back to the 1920s.

The fourth and final parade for 2018 will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday in Downtown Cheyenne.
