CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Cheyenne Frontier Days doesn't officially start until Friday but reminders of the Old West have already arrived.

People watched as about 500 cattle were driven through the city on Sunday.

The Associated Press reported that the Cheyenne Frontier Days Dandies galloped ahead of the cattle, which were taken down a road adjacent to Interstate 25. About half the steers stopped to graze at one point but cowboys on horseback got them moving again.

The five-mile journey ended at Frontier Park. The cattle will be used in rodeo events, including roping.
