David L'Heureux/Eagle Correspondent Raffle tickets for the above pickup will be sold Saturday at the Rocky Mountain Oyster Feed. The winner will be announced Aug. 7, the last night of the Eagle County Fair and Rodeo.

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.
