For the first time ever United Way of Bedford County will be hosting "Ducks on the Duck" on Labor Day, September 3rd.
Plans are for more than 3,100 ducks to be released below the dam. They will race under the bridge with the finish line located where the river begins to narrow.
The Lucky Duck to cross the finish line first wins $1,000 cash prize! Additonal prizes are planned.
Ducks can be purchased for $5 each. Buy a "Quacker Box" of six for $25 or a "Quacking Dozen" for $50. For $100 you can really go "Quackers" by purchasing 25 ducks.
If you are not interested in purchasing a duck contributions are also encouraged and welcomed.
Check the United Way of Bedford County website for more details.
