Sponsor a Duck – Win Cash Prizes

This year to include the “Duck Around Town” and the Family Fun Festival
The Mesquite Chamber of Commerce is inviting the community to join in fun at this year’s Ducky Derby.  Hafen Park Pond is again the location of this year’s race on Saturday, April 4, 2015.  The fun starts at 10 a.m. with family fun events, and don’t forget to come and meet the newest member of the Mesquite Chamber of Commerce, “Derby the Duck”.  The day continues with the judging of the “Duck Around Town” entries at 10:30 a.m. (contact the Chamber for details on how to enter).  The rubber duckies will be all warmed up and ready to take the plunge at 11 a.m. with the help of fans quacking and cheering them on.  The slow but suspenseful race is fun for all.  To finish it all off, don’t forget the “Pluck-A-Duck” after the race for prizes.  Families and individuals are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the day.

This is how it works.  All you have to do is sponsor a duck to be part of the Ducky Derby.  Your sponsorship is only:

$5.00 for one Rubber Ducky
$25.00 for a Quack Pack of 6 Rubber Duckies

The first three rubber duckies that cross the finish line wins:

$250 for FIRST PRIZE
$100 for THIRD PRIZE

** You may sponsor as many rubber duckies as you like.  Best part is, you need not be present to win, although you won’t want to miss this day.
Sponsors will be given a numbered ticket and the corresponding number will be on each highly trained rubber ducky for race day.  Only those duckies that have a ticket sponsor will be allowed to race in the Derby.  Every rubber ducky wants to race, so please sponsor as many duckies as you can!  This is not only fun, but is a fundraising event for the Mesquite Chamber of Commerce.
it’s time to get creative and have fun creating your own Duck for the event.  All are invited to enter; all you have to do is pick-up an entry form at the Chamber of Commerce and sign your Duck up by April 1st.  It is only $10 to enter and the Judges will pick three ducky creations for prizes:

  •  Best Overall
  •  Most Creative
  •  Most Humorous

Let your imagination run wild.  Create a duck that represents your business, club, or just enter to have fun.  So get creative and enter for a chance to be the “Duck Around Town”.
The Ducky Derby is a great opportunity to flock to the park with your friends and family for a fun filled time of ducky delights.  The Chamber is very excited to again sponsor this family fun event!
