It’s going to quite the site on Sun., March 8th as the Ducky Derby returns CityPlace to benefit Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches — and you can be a part of it. How? By adopting a rubber duck. Yes, you can go online and purchase 1 of 3 packages of ducks, ranging from $5-$100 — they’ll also be available on the day of the event.  On the day of the event, the participating adopted duck will be chose at random from 1/2 block long pond and those chosen will enjoy a fabulous prize including a gift certificate to a local restaurant, a 1-week stay in Orlando and one lucky winner will go home with $5,000.

The 3rd Annual Ducky Derby is part of CityPlace’s Monthly Family Fun Fest. In addition to the derby, participants can also dress up with their favorite tropical clothes (the theme this month is a Luau); enjoy the bounce house, arts and crafts, face painting — and be able to meet their favorite characters. Plenty of picture opportunities.
