Duckie Derby Set For Saturday At Allaire
7th annual running of the duckies to take place at historic village
Allaire Village is scheduled to host the 7th annual Ducky Derby beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday.
The event, a fundraiser for the village, will feature the "Ducky Splash,'' where children are invited to race a duck down the mill pond for prizes, in addition to face painting and animal baloons.
Children's ducks are $3 each and all proceeds go toward running the programs at the living history village. All entrants will receive a certificate of authenticity, a letter stating that they have made a tax-deductible contribution and after the race their very own duck that raced in the competition.
For children ages 2 – 5 years, there will be the “Lucky Ducky” event where children for $3 can purchase the opportunity to "fish" for a duck. Each duck has a prize and children can keep their duck.
