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
