The Dam Ducky Derby, now in its seventh year, annually draws 3,500 visitors to downtown Evergreen with food and festivities throughout downtown, trolley horse rides on Main Street and the Duck Drop at Evergreen Dam.
How does it work? A fire truck drops numbered ducks from above the dam to the creek below. As the rubber ducks race down Bear Creek, spectators follow the flow of thousands of ducks as they approach the finish line at Highland Haven Creekside Inn. Children help collect the ducks in their baskets so they can compete again next year.
Anyone may participate by buying one or more uniquely numbered ducks. The winning ducks numbers are documented as they cross the finish line and cash prizes and sponsor gifts are awarded to the owners of the speediest ducks.
Best of luck and call me to find your Evergreen dream home.
