Silverton 4th of July Duck Derby

The annual 4th of July duck derby will occur at 2pm in memorial park.  You can get a duck from the visitors center before the 4th, or in memorial park after the parade.  Ducks are $5 each and if you buy 4 you get a water shooter.

But be warned, this year’s competition is fierce as many of these ducks have been training 7 days a week for months.  There will be some mean little duckies out there fighting for victory so don’t think this will be a walk on the park. Although, technically you will have to walk through the park to watch the race. ;-P

Proceeds benefit the Silverton Chamber of Commerce.
