Join us for our Duck Derby at The Waterfront Festival

See if your Duck can be the winner.

DUCK FACT FILE: 

Did you know that the way ducks have adapted to get some good shut-eye while still keeping a look out for potential danger? 

Ducks close one eye in order to put half their brain to sleep while keeping the other eye open and the other half of their brain awake and alert! Mesmerising stuff!

HERE IS ANOTHER FASCINATING DUCK FACT: 

At Frankston Promenade on February 18th and 19th is The Waterfront Festival and this year there is a new crowd pleaser! 

Peninsula Rotary 2.0 will be hosting the Kananook Duck Derby, Sponsored by Harbour Frankston, the proceeds will support local community organisations. 

On Saturday at 2:30 pm, the Rotary Club will be releasing 1200 numbered rubber duckies into Kananook Creek from the footbridge at the end of Playne Street and they will race to a collection point near Frankston Boat Hire near Davey Street. Some may go swimmingly and others might go upside down and float upstream being less aerodynamic; who knows! However, it will be worth checking out the place-getters as there are some seriously great prizes! 

First duck to be scooped from the line will win a $1000 Karingal Hub shopping voucher. 

The second and third ducks scooped will receive $200 and $100 Village Movie (Karingal) Vouchers and we have additional prizes donated by our fabulous Frankston Restaurants.

All you have to do to take part in this spectacular spectacle is to click on “Buy Ticket Here”  and purchase a Lucky Duck entry number for $10. This means your duck will be racing and be eligible for a prize. We will have a podium presentation after the race to present the wonderful prizes. A limited number of tickets will be available on the day so make sure you secure a berth prior to the event. 

We hope to see you there watching the race along the banks of the creek. You will know who your local Rotarians are as they will be the ones with the cute duck hats on!! If you are interested in being an active participator in Local, National and Global Community causes, consider joining Rotary. Just speak to any of the current members, even if they might look quackers!!00
