Those attending this year's Daddy of 'em All will notice new stoplights near Frontier Park.

To help with traffic control and street safety, four temporary traffic signals have been placed at the intersection of West 8th Avenue and Carey Avenue.

Police say they'll still be out patrolling the area, but here's what you need to know:

  • Treat the intersection as any other road with traffic lights and obey the signals.
  • Pedestrians should also obey traffic signals and use marked crosswalks.
  • During peak travel times (after rodeos and night shows for example) the signals will be shut off and officers will be directing traffic.

Police say the stoplights will remain in effect throughout Cheyenne Frontier Days, which officially kicked off today and wraps up next Sunday, July 30.

"Please use extra caution and remember to be considerate, safe, and patient this week," police said in a Facebook post.

LOOK: VIntage Postcards Showing-Off Cheyenne Frontier Days Through the Years

Postcards have been a thing since the mid-1800s. Sending pictures and short messages on card-stock paper to friends and families really took off in the first half of the 20th century. While not quite as popular today, they still exist, and collecting postcards even has a special name, Deltiology.

Postcards were made for a lot of things, like vacation destinations and events. Cheyenne Frontier Days was the source of many. On the auction site eBay we found a lot of vintage postcards with fascinating pictures of Cheyenne and the Daddy of 'Em All.
