Lacey Rotary 20th Duck Dash

By
Real Estate Agent with Managing Broker - City Realty Inc

This past Saturday we went to the Lacey Rotary Duck Dash in Tumwater Falls Park & it was a blast!  I'm not sure how we managed to have not gone before this year since this is the 20th year it has been held, but I'm glad we got there finally this time.  Our almost 2 year old granddaughter thought it was a great idea right from the time we parked and rode on the shuttle bus to the event (actually she has been wanting to ride the bus again ever since!).

Lots to play on at the Duck Dash

The park had games, a giant slide, face painting, a fishing pond, balloons, a bouncy house, music, and local food booths to entertain the crowd while they waited for the actual duck dash to happen. 

The release of the Duck Dash ducks

When the time neared for the ducks to be released, the crowd started moving into position along the river to see the big crane hoist up the container of ducks and then send them tumbling down to the river to race to the finish line.

Ducks dashing down the river

The Duck Dash is a fundraiser for Lacey Rotary for their support of charities, scholarships and community events.  People can purchase their duck for $5.00 and the fastest ducks to the finish line win their purchasers some awesome prizes - a 2010 Ford Mustang, cash amounts, 57" TV, fishing trips, gift certificates, etc.   I don't think we won any prizes - our ducks might still be lurking somewhere hung up on the rocks and branches lining the river - but we definitely had a great time!  Don't miss it next year - I know we will have it on our calendars to attend!

Thanks Sandy!  We had a great time at Duck Dash, especially since Addy is just at an age to think the balloons, riding the shuttle, seeing "ducks" etc are the best thing ever!!
