27th Annual Ducky Derby

Duck, Duck, Race!

September 2016

The Redding East Rotary’s Ducky Derby will take place on Sept. 25 at Caldwell Park, with more than 35 thousand little yellow ducks making the big plunge into the Sacramento River from Diestlhorst Bridge. The North Valley Art League will be sponsoring Art in the Park and there will be a Rats to Riches car show.

Each year the Ducky Derby raises over $150,000 for local youth services. Since its inception, over $4 million has been returned to local communities for youth development programs and drug- and alcohol-free activities.

If you would like to adopt a duck or sponsor this event, contact Marge Beck at DUCK Central, 1910 Market Street, (530) 225-8583 or any Redding East Rotarian. Duck adoptions are $5 a piece. You can also adopt ducks from kids selling tickets. For more information, visit
