Tickets for the Minnesota Vikings Draft Party will go on sale to the general public on April 2.
The draft party is held annually at the team's Winter Park indoor practice facility annually, and this year's event will be on April 28. It moved from its previous Mall of America location in 2002 and has been sold out since. Tickets are $20 to the general public, and season-ticket holders and official fan club members have been able to purchase tickets at a reduced price since last week.
The team has gotten "a fairly good response" to the sale so far, according to event organizer Debra Jones.
Besides the usual autograph sessions, interactive games and KFAN's live broadcast, this year the team is holding a "Pick the Pick" contest, where people who correctly guess the player that the Vikings select will be entered into a drawing in which the winner will meet the team's first-round pick at his Sunday press conference and receive dinner for two and a limo ride to Eden Prairie's Wild Fire restaurant.
To order tickets, visit the Vikings ticket office at the Metrodome or call 612-33-VIKES (4537).
