The Gerringong Men’s Shed’s third annual Duck Derby has quickly become a New Year tradition for locals and visitors, while raising much needed funds for fitting out the group’s new headquarters.
“People adopt a duck for $5, and if the duck with their number on it crosses the line first they win a great prize,” says Ken Harris.
“We’re going to have two races this year, and will be returning to our original method of launching them off the footbridge.”
Look for the duck adoption centres outside the Gerringong IGA or in front of the chemist on Fern St, or get one on the day.
“It’s a fun day for all the family,” says Ken. “I love to see the kids competing in the Best Dressed Duckling competition.”
Details: Monday 8 January, around Gerroa Footbridge. Races at 11am and Noon
