It’s duck-racing season.
Not to be confused with duck-hunting season, duck races are when thousands of rubber ducks get together and race for a good cause.
It’s become an annual tradition in Hall County as a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs, and this year the ducks will gather this Saturday at Clarks Bridge Park.
Family Fun Day – Clark’s Bridge Park
Saturday, May 16th
11am – 2pm
The event also features a family health fair, a blood drive, visits by K-9 dogs and activities for kids, too. But the centerpiece of the day will be the race, when the ducks all jump in the water and race around a pre-set course to the finish line.
Each duck comes with a number, but they also have some racing history attached to them, too.Story – Gainesville Times, Get Out – Thursday, May 14, 2009
