Ducky Derby tickets on sale now

Rotarians around Castle Rock are busy selling tickets for the 22nd annual Rotary Ducky Derby, and a winning ticket could be worth $1 million or a new car.

The event is organized by the three Rotary clubs in the Castle Rock area — Rotary Club of Castle Rock, Rotary Club of Castle Pines and Castle Rock High Noon Rotary Club — and money raised goes to a variety of local nonprofits, student scholarships and other grant recipients.

This year's derby is June 9 at Festival Park at Wilcox and Second streets in downtown Castle Rock. The street festival begins at 11 a.m. and will include entertainment for children and adults. There also will be food and drink booths, a silent auction and vendors from a variety of local businesses.

Duckies with attached numbers will be launched into East Plum Creek about 3 p.m. and winners will be selected at the finish line downstream. Winning numbers will be posted at the event. Cash prizes of $2,000, $750 and $250 will be awarded to the top three winners, and others could win goods and services from local merchants. One does not need to be present to be a winner.

Also this year, the Ducky Derby is working with local arts guilds to promote Court the Arts, an art show and sale June 9-10, one block north on Wilcox on the lawn in front of the county administration building.

Tickets are sold from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every weekend through June 3 at King Soopers at Castle Pine Parkway and in Castle Rock King Soopers stores at Ridge Road and at The Promenade near U.S. Highway 85 west of the Outlet Shops.

Tickets also are being sold at Mama Lisa's Little Italy in Castle Pines, and the Castle Rock Senior Center. Tickets also can be obtained from any Rotarian who is a member of one of the three clubs or online at www.crduckyderby.org. Further information also available online.
