Quack Quack

Saturday was the annual Ducky Derby Race

 It's quite obvious that it is a big deal around here!

You donate $5.00 and you are given a chance on a duck...or you can purchase 5 chances for $20.00.

At 2pm on Saturday a front loader was lifted high over the Henson Creek Bridge
and into the creek went all of the little duckies
and off they go! The first duckie to cross under the Ocean Wave Bridge (sic) about a mile away wins a $1,000.!

Volunteers with nets stretch across the river at the finish line, catching all of the ducks, as not to pollute the river.

  1. I will continue to be amazed at the ideas communities have for fund-raisers. You live in a really active community during the summer months. Fun for all.

  2. A big event I see, lots of fun, but no money for you?

  3. That's a lot of ducks going in there Janey, how wonderful that so many people donated knowing they probably don't have much of a chance of winning..that's the spirit :)
