Happy 125th Birthday to the State of Wyoming!

How will you celebrate? Tomorrow, Friday, July 10th, there will be a number of fun and family-oriented activities taking place in Cheyenne to commemorate the fact that Wyoming has been a state since 1890.  Wow!

You’ll find the schedule and more information about tomorrow’s celebration here.  There will be special tours of the Wyoming State Museum and the Governor’s mansion, a scavenger hunt, live music,  even an ice cream social!  At 9:30, the party will go out with a big bang–with fireworks!
