Lining up chairs along Main Street in Historic Downtown Sheridan in preparation for events Friday morning has become an annual tradition. The Sheridan Police Department reminds people that if you are going to set your chair up early, be sure it's done after 6 pm this evening. Police Chief Richard Adriaens says that there is another rule that people need to keep in mind when putting their chairs out early.
Adriaens says that although many establishments expand their alcoholic beverage serving area for Rodeo Friday, the City's open container law remains in effect.
Adriaens indicated that the open container law isn't lifted until the street dance begins, in which alcohol is allowed within the confines of the event fence in downtown. We'll hear more from Chief Adriaens Friday, as we'll take a look at how the Police Department will be offering assistance both Friday and Saturday nights at the street dance.
