Posted by: Roxy - Print This Post Print This Post

Bay Head, New Jersey is having its very own rubber duck derby to benefit the Bay Head School Foundation.  Scheduled for Saturday, September 6th, from Noon to 3pm, the Great Bay Head Duck Derby includes a $50 Diamond Duck Race, a $10 Dainty Duck Race, gift auctions and silent auctions.  The day’s events will begin at Noon, with the races taking place at approximately 2:00pm, rain or shine.  There will be two races, the Diamond Duck Race and the Dainty Duck Race, coinciding with the $50 chances sold and the $10 chances sold.  Both races will take place at the Scow Ditch River at Centennial Park in Bay Head, NJ.   Hundreds, maybe thousands, of yellow rubber ducks will race to the finish line.

There will be tons of entertainment throughout the day, including amazing face painting by the nationally acclaimed Peanutbutter Face Painters.  There will be cultural displays from The Bay Head Historical Society, the Boat Museum, the Anchor and Palette art gallery, and photography from Hartshorn Portraiture.  Bring your dancing shoes and an appetite for great live music and plenty of food!

This unique fundraising event is sponsored by the Bay Head School Foundation, which was formed and is guided by volunteers from our Bay Head community to help meet the challenges facing our small school system.  The Foundation puts 100% of equities raised towards helping the school and its students in ways that the school budget cannot.
