The Rotary Club of Castle Rock held its 23rd Annual Ducky Derby fundraiser and family fun festival at Festival Park in downtown Castle Rock in June. The event featured a variety of street vendors, live entertainment, face painting, a bouncy castle and the event finale – the Ducky Derby race.
More than 8,000 duckies were launched this year into Plum Creek and $3,500 in cash prizes were awarded. This year’s lucky top prize winner for the $2,000 cash prize was Pam Nelson. Proceeds from this year’s event will be distributed to local nonprofits, including Crisis Center, Hope & Help Center, Sky Cliff Center, Wellspring Community and Colorado Horsepower.
