4th of July Fireworks and the Dewey Duck Derby
Start Date/Time: Thursday, July 4, 2019 4:00 PM
Description:

Free watermelon, activities for the kids, music, and fireworks make for a huge 4th of July celebration! Starting at 4 pm in Don Tyler Park, come and set up your picnic area for the day. Great food is available from the Dewey Lions Club starting at 4 pm. Live music will start at 6:00, duck race at 8:30, and fireworks at 9:35. 

The annual Dewey Duck Derby will take place at 8:30 pm. If you missed it in previous years, you are in for a treat this year!  Hundreds of  numbered plastic ducks will race down the "Delaware River" (that runs through the middle of Don Tyler Park)  for super prizes. Grand Prize is awarded to the first duck to cross the finish line. You can purchase a duck number at City Hall, Linger Longer Antiques & Soda Fountain, and the Dewey Library. In addition to the Grand Prize, other prizes will be awarded to the top 5 winning duck owners.  

Prizes for the race are will be announced as soon as the details are known.

Ducks sell 1 for 5 bucks, 5 for 20 bucks, or  buy a Quack Pack of 10 for 30 bucks (subsequent numbers of ducks past 10 are $3 each). All the plastic ducks that race are numbered, and you are reserving the number, not the actual plastic duck.  Please buy ducks and support YOUR 4th of July celebration!   The Dewey Civic Association puts on the 4th of July event, and they depend on donations to make the event happen.

So come early for the fun, and stay until dark for a fantastic fireworks display. Contact Cassie at City Hall 534-2272 for further information.
