The 20th Anniversary Ducks were so popular that they will be racing again this year. These Anniversary Ducks are 10 inches high and 11 inches long, making it possible for the name or logo for your duck to be put on the breast of the duck for all to see; they will be sold for $100 each. The first place anniversary duck will win $1,000 and all Anniversary Duck ticket holders will be able to collect their duck and keep it at the end of the race.

Regular Wildquack Duck tickets are on sale for $6 each or four for $20, Olympic Duck tickets are on sale for $20 each. The first place purse for the regular duck winner is $1,000, the first place purse for the Anniversary Duck winner and the Olympic Duck winner is 50 percent of tickets sold for each individual type of duck.

All ducks are eligible for all other 60-plus prizes. Prizes include over- night stays, restaurant gift certificates, massage gift certificates, back packs filled with goodies and much more. Don't forget, there is even a prize for the very last Duck deemed to have crossed the finish line. This last duck will win a prize package valued at more than $500. Post time for all races combined is 2 p.m.

Kids will want to come early to enjoy the games and craft activities presented by our Kennett High Key Club.

Everyone should come hungry, thensatisfy their taste buds with fabulous barbeque foods offered by local and visiting chefs. Try the kettle corn, ice cream, lobster sandwiches and more. Watch the "ever growing" parade starting from the Covered Bridge at 1:30 p.m., have your picture taken with "Wildquack," the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce Duck, visit local businesses and really enjoy this "ole" fashioned "Day in the Park."
