The Rotary Duck Race is this Sunday.
It’s the second annual race whereby 10,000 ducks will be sent down the Alouette River and the first one across the line – or the owner of that duck ticket – wins a Jeep Wrangler Sport 4X4, donated by Maple Ridge Chrysler.
The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Maple Ridge Park and the ducks will be floated down the river during the event.
Community groups have been selling the ducks at community events in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows for the past few months – the entire $10 it costs to buy a duck ticket goes to the groups selling the tickets.
In addition to a chance to win a Jeep, there are four other big prize packages.
Second prize is a luxury cruise for two aboard Holland America Lines.
Third prize is a household furniture and appliance package provided by Fuller Watson.
Fourth prize is a weekend stay in Whistler and apparel gift certificate from Maple Ridge’s Mark’s Work Wearhouse location.
Fifth prize is two rounds of golf for four, including a golf cart at Meadow Gardens Golf Course, and sixth prize is a 32inch flat screen TV provided by Audio Video Unlimited at Haney Sewing & Sound.
