Bay Head, New Jersey is having its second annual rubber duck derby to benefit the Bay Head School Foundation. Scheduled for Saturday, July 18th, starting at 11:00am, the Great Bay Head Duck Derby includes a $10 Duck Race, gift auctions and silent auctions. The day’s events will begin at 11:00am, with the races taking place, rain or shine, on Scow Ditch at Centennial Park in Bay Head, NJ. Hundreds, maybe thousands, of yellow rubber ducks will race to the finish line.  Great prizes include an ocean kayak from Jersey Paddler, a new bicycle from Point Pleasant Bicycle, a romantic dinner at Theresa’s South, a new skateboard from Pro Skateboard Shop, and family admission to Jenkinson’s Aquarium. Anyone can sponsor a duck for ten bucks and participate in another great day of fun and food in Bay Head. For more information, please call the school (732-892-0668) or pick up tickets outside of Muellers or Curtis’ Central Market any weekend morning. Tickets are also available at Applegate’s Hardware, the W.A.S.P., the Bee, and the Jolly Tar. All proceeds go directly to benefit the Bay Head School.

There will be tons of entertainment throughout the day… last year’s Duck Derby included amazing face painting by the nationally acclaimed Peanutbutter Face Painters, cultural displays from The Bay Head Historical Society, the Boat Museum, the Anchor and Palette art gallery, photography from Hartshorn Portraiture, 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.
