(Seguin) -- The prize load just lot bigger at this year's Guadalupe County Fair and PRCA Rodeo. Both a new pickup truck and new house are part of the grand prize package being offered up thanks to Wyatt Arp Chrysler Dodge Jeep and Palm Harbor Homes here in Seguin.

"Everyone loves the Guadalupe County Fair and PRCA Rodeo. KWED's Listener Appreciation Night on Thursday night has become a crowd favorite and one of the reasons for that -- well you have a chance to drive home in a brand new pick up truck. Now we've been teaming up with Wyatt Arp Chrysler Dodge Jeep for the last few years to host the truck giveaway. This year, itís gone into hyper drive. Not only will one lucky person have the chance to win a $50,000 truck, but we also got Palm Harbor Homes in the mix and Palm Harbor Homes is going to give away a $50,000 brand new home. So you get a $50,000 truck, you get a $50,000 home. It's all yours (and) to one lucky winner if you can get the right combination for the giveaway on Thursday night," said Dunn.
Dunn says free rodeo tickets to Thursday night's event are also be provided as part of KWED's Listener Appreciation Night. Dunn says both companies are again doing their part to help bring everyone out to the fair and give them that chance to win $100,000 in prizes.
"I don't think you have to do much to entice people to come to the Guadalupe County Fair. People love the county fair. It's one of the longest running traditions in this community, but the customer appreciation and listener appreciation night event there at the fair hosted by Seguin Radio KWED is one of those things that we really want to encourage people to come out for. Bring your family out. Enjoy the mid way. Enjoy some of the great food that night and then watch those professional cowboys and cowgirls participate in the PRCA rodeo. It's a great time. It's a great event and of course, Wyatt Arp Chrysler Dodge Jeep and Palm Harbor Homes could give someone $100,000 worth of prizes -- new truck, new home -- what more can you ask for?," said Dunn.
The free rodeo tickets will be made available through Thursday or until supplies last. Tickets can be picked up at Wyatt Arp or at Palm Harbor Homes. Those are the only two locations offering the free tickets. Only six tickets per person will be allowed.
