The Daybreak Rotary Club’s Duck Dip is back for another year.
This time, the day’s proceeds will go to building Linda’s Place, the low-cost housing at the Campbell River Head Injury Support Society.
The event will be on all day on Saturday. Tony Fantillo is the chair of the Duck Dip committee at the club. He says tickets will still be on sale for the duck dip itself until 2:00 pm on Saturday.
He says there are various prizes to be won, including $5000 in cash.
But besides the actual duck dip, there are other things for the family, including a pool for families to race remote control boats on, a bouncy castle, face painting, as well as arts and crafts.
There will be a by-donation barbecue as well.
And at 2:00 pm, that’s when the fun will begin.
“We’re hoping to have about 4000 ducks. We just dump them in the pool and they all have a number corresponding to the tickets we’ve sold,” Fantillo said.
Blindfolded officials will then scoop out one winning duck at a time. Fantillo says in total, they have 10 prizes for people to win.
The Duck Dip will be held at Spirit Square.
