The Duck Derby in Porterdale on Saturday, June 27, offers family fun, live music, cold drinks and fireworks – and for $20 it offers support for the Boys & Girls Clubs of North Georgia and a chance to win $10,000.
Some 6,000 ducks will be launched into the Yellow River and the winner duck will earn some lucky person $10,000. The event starts at 7 p.m. and the Duck launch begins at 8 p.m. The rubber duck that crosses the finish line first will win its sponsor $10,000! The balance of the money raised will go towards the Boys and Girls Club of North Georgia which supports youth in Walton, Newton, Greene, Morgon and Lamar counties.
The Duck Derby family fun event will take place at Porterdale Yellow River Park at 739 Railroad St., Porterdale, Ga 30014, just a little over 30 minutes from Walton County.
