Wetumpka, are you ready for rubber ducks? This Saturday, April 16, 2016 the Wetumpka Craterfest is about to get more yellow with the River Region Duck Dash. The River Region Duck Dash will make its grand debut at the Wetumpka Craterfest. Join a day of festivities and watch 5,000 yellow rubber ducks with really cool sunglasses race down the Coosa River in Wetumpka, AL at about 3:00 p.m. The top three ducks who cross the finish line first will win some ducktacular cash prizes. The grand prize is $1,500 for the quickest duck of them all! The second grand prize is $1,000 cash and the third grand prize is $750 cash.
Why are 5,000 rubber ducks racing down the river? To help out local nonprofits in the community. The Wetumpka Rotary supports the Humane Society of Elmore County, Camp ASCAA, and Adullum House. In addition, the Rotary supports the Wetumpka Rotary Dictionary Project, Elmore County Pregnancy Center, Relay for Life, and more! All of this would not be possible without the help of the Wetumpka Rotary Club who has worked very hard in organizing this quacky event and help get those ducks adopted! The Wetumpka Rotary Club is make up of business owners and community leaders with a heart to serve others and creative positive, lasting change in their community and around the world.
