Ducks have their day in Castle Rock

Posted

Crowds gathered at Festival Park in Castle Rock on June 9 for the annual Ducky Derby fundraiser, put on by the Castle Rock and Castle Pines Rotary clubs. In the park were vendors, snacks and activities such as a bouncy house for children, but true to tradition the highlight of the event was the rubber duck “race” down Plum Creek.

Eventgoers walked roughly a quarter mile down the Plum Creek Trail to the start of the race on Plum Creek, where hundreds of rubber ducks were dumped into the creek. The first to cross the finish line downstream won cash prizes for people who purchased tickets, each corresponding with a duck.

Proceeds benefit local charities, including the Douglas/Elbert Task Force and the Women's Crisis Center.
