The 4th Annual Ducky Dash and Derby is going on tomorrow at Peaskview Park, Ardmore Drive Entrance. It's a floating rubber duck race as Ivy Creek in Peaks View Park gets flooded with 2,500 rubber ducks. With the help of the moving stream waters, some "Duck Wranglers" and nets, the race will be an event you won't want to miss. Admission is free. Bring the kids out for games, activities, concessions and family fun - not to mention the chance to win great prizes.
