The Fairfield County Duckie Derby is an annual free to attend family fun event scheduled for May 21, 2011. Over 1000 little rubber duckies will be released into the Mill River at 1:30 for a race to the finish line. Large sized rubber ducks will be decorated ahead of time and entered into the “Decorated Duck” contest. Trophies and prize ribbons will be awarded. Games, food, and two fuzzy, friendly duck mascots will be on hand to entertain the “young at heart”. A $10 donation gets you and your family a race duck number- you might have a real winner. A $15 donation gets you a large rubber duck to decorate and enter into the Decorated Duck contest. All proceeds benefit St. Catherine’s Academy, a school for children with special needs located in Fairfield.
