FULTON – The Fulton Lions Club proudly presents the running of the 25th annual Duck Derby, from noon to 5 p.m. Sept. 13, said Paul Foster, club president.
“We’ve renamed the event, “Charby’s Duck Derby” in honor the late Don Charbonneau, a Fulton Lions past president and creator of the derby,” Foster said. “He was a shining light for our club and possessed a wonderful sense of humor. He is deeply missed by us all and we wanted to honor him by officially naming the derby after him.”
“This year there will by prizes for the 22 top finishers as well as the last place duck, with a grand prize of $2,525,” said Zach Merry, event chair. “There are also more than 50 local raffle prizes to be won on the day of the event, and The Fabulous Ripcords will provide live entertainment all day.”
The event is in Canal Park, behind Tavern on the Lock.
Duck tickets can be purchased the day of the event or pre-event at The Fulton Medicine Place, Chirello Advertising, or from any Fulton Lion.
Fulton’s Lions Club, also known for their Lions Loot Sweepstakes, and Lions Mane Event Comedy Night, provides financial assistance for those in need of eyeglasses, eye exams, and hearing aids to residents in the Greater Fulton area.
