Quack on: Duck Derby at Clark Park is a go

The Annual Vicksburg Community Schools Foundation Duck Derby will be held in Clark Park on June 12 during the 40th Vicksburg Old Car Festival. The kids’ race will start at noon with the adult race to start at 1 p.m.

The kids’ race is a challenge among the district’s elementary classrooms; students from the classroom selling the most tickets will receive an ice cream token from Apple Knockers. That classroom will also host the coveted Duck Derby Trophy.

In the final race, the top 10 student ducks will receive prizes. First prize is a $100 gift card from Target. In the adult race, the top three adult ducks win $100, $75, and $50. Raffle tickets for both races are on sale now and may also be purchased before the race. Contact the Foundation office at 321-1006 for more information. Proceeds from this event help the Foundation and its financial support for the Vicksburg Community Schools for needs beyond traditional educational funding.
