"Rubber Ducky... You're the One!"
Ducky Derbies are becoming a fun thing to do when you need to raise money for a charity and you couldn't ask for a better place to do it than at Heritage Harbor Marina in Ottawa, Il.
This Sunday ( September 5, 2010) as part of the long holiday weekend Heritage Harbor Marina along with Marquette Academy will be hosting it's third annual charity Ducky Derby. Hundreds of ducks will be making their way around the harbor.
What could be better than happy little rubber duckies being dumped into the harbor and sent on the merry little way. Who ever " adopts" the fastest ducky wins. But even the slowest ducky get something... the duck that paddles the slowest and comes in last wins $100.00 How cool is that!
The holiday weekend signals the end of summer and the unofficial beginning of the holiday shopping season... or so it seems. This years event will be full of crafters and local vendors showcasing their best merchandise and homemade crafts to either give as gifts or to decorate your home.
Not that I even want to think about it, but it's coming so why not get prepared early. Decorations, gifts, and cool things for yourself... isn't that the best part of shopping !!
So be adventurous this weekend and take a drive to see the duckies dive in and I bet you will float away with some great items, and a good feeling.
