Rubber ducks will be raced in heats at Big Spring Memorial Park in Athens at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 8th.  There will be four heats and the number of winners in each heat will be determined by the final number of prizes.

All heat winners will enter the Championship Race.  Prizes won will be determined by the order the ducks come through the duck trap.  The first duck through the trap will win the Limestone Farmer’s Cooperative $1,000 Grand Prize!


Where Can Ducks be Adopted?

KALB will have duck adoptions available at the KALB office, Grease Festival (September), Fiddlers Convention (October), and online beginning soon.  Look for us at other community events!  See instructions for online adoptions below.
