Duck Derby

Each year in May, we race tens of thousands of "adopted ducks" down the river to the Finish Line. In 2006, we began to use the Etowah River. Just below the dam which creates Lake Allatoona, 2 minutes from Highway 41 and 5 minutes from I-75, the Army Corps of Engineers is allowing us to use the spacious and gorgeous Riverside Day Use Area, and the've already trimmed the underbrush for excellent viewing of the 2007 race.

This year's theme is Surf's Up: Duck Derby Six! It's all about the beach -- tropical shirts, grass skirts, and "Hanging Ten!"

Planning has begun. Enthusiastic volunteers plan the festival, chair committees, sell adoptions, do data entry, plan the duck labeling party and the Quackers and Cheese party, work with the media, and the list goes on, catching the wave.
