Why a Duck!?
Pick a duck & win $500 bucks!

Join us for a day on Papermill Creek as we celebrate the 9th running of the Ducks. In case you have never participated in this event, The Duck Derby is a race in which yellow rubber ducks are released down Papermill Creek in a push for the finish line. We have constructed a free-floating racecourse in which we can clearly monitor the ducks’ progress and easily pluck them from the water after they cross the finish line. A number of initial heats will be run, with the first 25 ducks from each heat competing against each other in a final race to determine the first, second, and third prize winners. First prize is $500! The course’s finish line at White House Pool is just upstream from the footbridge, with plenty of room for parking and viewing. There will be live music with Dave Whitney, and food and drinks will be on sale to benefit the Dance Palace.

The 9th Dance Palace Duck Derby is scheduled for Sunday, October 12, from 11 AM–1 PM at White House Pool.
Tickets are available tat the Farmers’ Market and the Dance Palace office, also at White House Pool on the day of the race. Tickets are $5 each, or you can get a “Quack Pack” of 5 ducks for 20 bucks. Don’t miss your chance to win big and benefit the Dance Palace at this fun-filled event. Act soon, tickets are going fast!
