We arrived shortly after the event started only to learn that they would not be launching the ducks down Mill Creek for the race as normal. Apparently the sponsors of the race felt there was not enough current in the creek where the ducks are normally released for them to float down stream in a "timely" manner. Instead they decided to just dump them in a field and have someone fish through the ducks to draw out the winners. Needless to say we weren't to thrilled about that news but decided to stick around anyway.
The event is sponsored by a local bank and all the proceeds go towards prevention of Child Abuse.
The Grand Prize was this car or $10,000 in cash. - There were other prize packages available as well.
"Izzy the Camel" - A kid was feeding him carrots and right after I took this shot Izzy swung his head and bopped Coleen in the head. Thankfully she wasn't hurt, just startled.
Oh well....there is always next year!
