CLEARFIELD – This summer, highly trained and dedicated rubber ducks will take to the water on June 28 as part of the Clearfield Revitalization Corp.’s (CRC) Bloom & Berry Bash and “Anything that Floats” Boat Regatta.
The water activities will begin at 1 p.m. at Lower Witmer Park. The goal of the event is to raise funds for downtown improvement efforts by the CRC. A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to the Clearfield Fire Department.
Each duck will race its way downriver to the finish line and carry a unique number corresponding to the number on one of the purchased tickets. Each ticket will earn the buyer one duck in the race.
The ducks are awaiting the chance to be the first across the finish line to win their ticket holder a $500 cash prize. Ticket purchasers do not need to be present to win. Only 500 tickets will be sold.
The first 100 children at the race will receive a souvenir rubber duck. Duck Derby tickets can be purchased for $5 each online at www.DiscoverClearfield.com or by contacting the CRC office.
Main Street Manager Heather Bozovich stated, “This exciting event will not only help raise funds for downtown revitalization, but will also draw people to town and to the river. There is an exciting day full of events with something for everyone. We hope everyone will take time to enjoy downtown Clearfield.”
The Rubber Duck Derby is sponsored by Aarons, D.C. Chiropractics, Fullington Bus Company and Rob Bozovich State Farm.
The day will begin with the Bloom & Berry Bash downtown festival from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. It will be featuring food, craft vendors, kids’ activities and live entertainment provided by Guitarnia.
