Roducky Derby set
PLATTSBURGH — Now in its 15th year, the Roducky Derby is an opportunity to help raise funds for the many charitable organizations that the Plattsburgh Rotary Club supports in the North Country.
The derby will start in front of the Macdonough Monument around 3 p.m. Saturday following the Beat Retreat during the Battle of Plattsburgh festivities. It will be part of Rotary Race Day, which will include the fourth annual running of the Rotary Bed Race.
Hundreds of yellow rubber ducks will be let loose to careen down a man-made river along the sidewalk leading to the Saranac River.
“These are racing ducks that have been training and preparing for months to go out and raise money for local non-profits,” said Ellen Bouchard, Roducky Derby chairperson.
The numbered ducks sport sunglasses, smiles and race for the sake of charity. Each duck will race to the finish line in an effort to win a prize for the person who adopted it. Ducks that make it first into the duck trap win prizes donated by local businesses for their adopters.
