Our racing ducks know they’ll be swimming for a good cause on October 5th — to support the work of KALB — so they are all flexing their feathers and preparing for the important race!
How Does it Work?
For a $5 donation to Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful, a specially-designed rubber racing duck will be placed in our Wacky Quacky Ducky Derby in your name! For a $25 donation, you will receive a CHICK-FIL-A Quack Pack which includes SIX ducks and a coupon for MOR CHIKIN from the Athens Chick-fil-A restaurant!
On October 5th at 4:00 p.m., these numbered rubber ducks will swim down the spillway at Big Spring Memorial Park (right across the street from the Fiddler’s Convention at Athens State). Heats will determine which ducks will enter the Championship Race. Every duck in the Championship Race will take home a prize for the human that adopted him! The number of ducks in the Championship Race will be determined by the number of prizes at the time of the race.
