Annual Oyster Feed set for today
The 15th annual Rocky Mountain Oyster Feed is being held at the Eagle County Fairgrounds today.
Festivities begin at 2:30 p.m. with cowboy games for kids and adults, and a demonstration by the Freedom Riders Equestrian Drill Team.
Dinner starts at 6 p.m., followed by live and silent auctions, which include an expanded Western art selection. A barn dance will follows.
The 2004 Dodge raffle truck will be on display and raffle tickets will be available. In addition to the Grand Prize truck, four other lucky runner-up tickets will be drawn to win $1000 each. The truck raffle will be announced on Saturday, August 7 on the last night of the rodeo. Tickets sold quickly last year, so be sure you don’t get left out.
Tickets for the Oyster Feed are $14 for adults, $6 for kids and can be bought at the door. Proceeds from the event benefit the Eagle County 4-H kids. For more information call 328-3646.
