Dam Ducky Derby in Downtown Evergreen
Name: Dam Ducky Derby in Downtown Evergreen
Date: August 1, 2015
The Dam Ducky Derby and Carnival, now in its sixth year, annually draws 3,500 visitors. 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. Children become part of the activity as they help collect the ducks at the end for another round the next year.
Anyone can participate by buying ducks, and are given unique numbers. The winning duck numbers are documented as they cross the finish line, and cash prizes and sponsor gifts are awarded to the holders of the speediest of the successful ducks.
