Be Mindful with “Parade Chairs” in Cody

There’s something unique about the main street of Cody, Wyoming over the 4th of July.

Visitors from around the country are amazed when they walk in downtown Cody on the evenings before the Stampede Parades each year – because residents have no concerns about leaving lawn chairs out on the sidewalk overnight, saving prime seating for the next morning’s celebration.

But the Cody Police Department is requesting just two things of residents who leave their chairs out overnight – first, they ask that folks refrain from putting the chairs out before 6 p.m. the night before.

The Department points out that by waiting until after 6 p.m., shoppers on Sheridan Avenue have ample room to maneuver the sidewalks during the day.

The other request of citizens is that they remove their chairs when the parade is finished. The Cody Enterprise points out that chairs left unoccupied after the parades can be removed by the merchants on whose sidewalks the chairs were left.

The Cody Stampede’s Centennial celebration parades will be held today, tomorrow and Thursday. The Big Horn Radio Network will be broadcasting the parades on the 3rd and 4th on 1400 AM and 96.7 FM.
