Update on Rubber Duck Race and Ice Cream Social: Come out on July 11 for a great time!

Posted on

Master Duckies Langreck and McClure 
have declared Little Buck Creek safe and secure!!  
DSC_3018The Inaugural Southport Rubber Duckie Race will take place tomorrow evening (Saturday, July 11) at 7:00.  Warm-up laps with a large inflated master duckie will commence at approximately 6:15.  His (or her…not sure) responsibility is to test the water temperature and current prior to the official race.  We understand the duckies don’t care about the water temperature but the volunteers sure do!!
All are welcome to gather between 6:15 and 7:00 pm in Southport Park. Further race instructions and rules will be provided closer to race time.
If you or family members, neighbors, co-workers, children, or grandchildren would still like to purchase a rubber duckie, they may do so between 6:00 and 7:00 pm.  Cost of the ducks are $2 each or 3 for $5.  This is a cash only business…no exceptions!!
Prize categories:
1st place:  $25 Walmart Gift Card (1 winner)
2nd place:  $20 Walmart Gift Card (1 winner)
3rd place:  $10 Walmart Gift Card (4 winners)
Boobie Prize: $5 Walmart Gift Card (2…unfortunates?)
The Southport Department of Parks and Recreation will hold their Second Saturday in Southport event, an Ice Cream Social, from 7-9, in conjunction with the duckie race.  Enjoy a complimentary ice cream sundae and be entertained by Tim Nolan of Tim Nolan Tunes.
