This year’s Conifer Christmas Market didn’t bring visions of sugar plums, but of Rocky Mountain oysters.
Yes, Rocky Mountain oysters.
As part of the 34th annual celebration, the Conifer Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a Rocky Mountain oyster-eating contest. Six brave souls had to eat 10 of the fried delicacies, with the first one to finish declared the winner.
“The theme this year was Rocky Mountain Christmas, so we had to do this,” chamber executive director Melanie Swearengin explained.
