Duck Race with over $800 in Prizes
What is small, yellow, and races? If you said a rubber ducky floating down the South Yadkin River, you would be correct!
More than a thousand rubber ducks will take a plunge into the South Yadkin near the Cooleemee dam on Saturday, July 16th at 1:00 PM sharp. The water is high, so the ducks are guaranteed quite a ride.
The first numbered duck to reach the finish line downriver will win its “owner” a cash prize of $500. The 2nd place winner will garner its ticket-buyer $250, and the 3rd place finisher will win $100. That’s something worth quacking about!

There’s only one way to win those cash prizes in the Duck Race, You have to buy a ticket. Single Duck tickets are $5 each, a “Quack Pack” of six sells for $25, and you can purchase a “Flock” of fifteen for $50. You do not have to be present to win but you must show your numbered ticket stub to collect your prize.
Tickets can be purchased at the Zachary House, Village Auto, and Town Hall in Cooleemee; at the Davie County Chamber of Commerce and the Bank of the Ozarks Bank in Mocksville; and at The Gateway Building in Salisbury.
Duck tickets will also be sold until 12:45 pm at RiverPark.
