Fisherman's Park Shelbyville, TN

Ducks on the Duck Race Day

Everything gets underway at 11 a.m. behind the old bank building on the square as well as at Fisherman’s Park. There will be a variety of live entertainment and several food trucks available.

There will be fun and games until 3 p.m. We hope everyone will take advantage of this local new Labor Day event and help United Way of Bedford County, a worthy cause.

People can buy a numbered ticket for $5 or a “Quacker Box’ with a half dozen of my fellow ducks for $25. Or they can really go “quackers” and buy a “quacker dozen” for $50.

The owner of the winning duck will receive $1,000. There will be additional prizes for second through 10th place. Tickets are on sale through members of the United Way board and online. All proceeds from ticket sales will be used to fund various local charitable organizations.
