The Bryant Rotary Club is hosting their 4th annual Rubber Duck Derby and it’s a little different this year.
Due to the pandemic, the festival and 5k are cancelled, however, they are still racing the rubber ducks once all of them have been adopted. Funds raised go to benefit the Bryant Rotary Kids Closet, the Bryant Boys and Girls Clubs and the Saline County Imagination Library.
The public can adopt as many ducks as they wish at $5.00 each, until all 5,000 are adopted. The race day will be decided after the ducks are all sold. Adopt a duck online at https://www.bryantrotary.org/duck-derby.
Meanwhile, to have a little extra fun, there’s a Facebook Live event from 6 – 8 p.m. on June 25th to celebrate with pies… And those pies will be thrown into a local Rotary member’s face every time a goal is met. Find out more about that event at https://facebook.com/events/s/duck-duck-pie-in-the-face/910456239380992.
The numbered ducks will be raced down a stream of water, and the “parents” of the winning ducks will win prizes. The grand prize this year is a side-by-side from Riggs Outdoor. Other prizes are listed below:
Since 2017, Bryant’s Mills Park is normally invaded by yellow rubber ducks during May. Watch the event’s Facebook page at facebook.com/pg/rubberduckfestival to follow when the ducks are all adopted and the race wait take place.
