When: Thursday, July 4, 5 p.m.
Where: Kings Creek at Brevard College, near the gymnasium. $5 per rubber duck. Info: http://www.duckraceforkids.org or 884-2787.
Why: Corralling a flock of ducks isn't easy, unless those ducks are made out of rubber. These quintessential bath toys will float down Kings Creek for an evening of friendly competition to benefit Kreative Kids Art Programs.
The Transylvania Community Arts Council's annual fundraiser supports art camp scholarships and Arts in Schools programming for students in the Transylvania County school system. But the race isn't just for kids; adults are welcome to join "hundreds of rubber feathered friends flocking together to help provide creative opportunities for youth in our community."
Adopt a duck for $5 (or six ducks for $25) and race them to victory. You do not need to be present to win, but who wouldn't want to see their duck’s beak cross the finish line?
