(Seguin) -- The Navarro Education Foundation will be putting all of its ducks in a row for what volunteers hope will be another successful fundraiser this Saturday. Plans are again in place for this year's NEF Duck Fest and Rubber Duck Race at Walnut Springs Park in downtown Seguin.
NEF Board President Katie Clark says supporters are encouraged to get into the action by adopting a $5 rubber duck and then cheering it on across the finish line.
"We have a rubber duck race with rubber ducks that are dropped into the creek at Walnut Springs Park. The first ducks across the finish line receive prizes and we have 30 prizes. This year, our top prize is a bay fishing trip in Seadrift for four people and it includes lodging at Seadrift. We have sponsors for the prizes. We have wonderful sponsors for duck fest, which is really a celebration of all the sponsorships that go back to the classrooms at Navarro," said Clark.
Clark says in addition to the ducks, there will be plenty of other fun ways to raise some money.
"Another neat thing that we are going to have that's just for fun -- we have free games, free prizes -- there will be booths with food and cotton candy and things like that, just a very much festival atmosphere, but we're going to have our second tug-of-war contest. High schoolers are invited to have a team of two guys and two girls. They can sign up at Duck Fest and the winning team gets a prize," said Clark.
Rubber ducks can be purchased/adopted up until noon on Saturday. Registration is available on the group's Facebook page, Navarro Education Foundation or on the school district's website www.nisd.us under the foundation tab.
Duckfest begins at 11 a.m. Saturday followed by the NHS Tug-of-War at 11:30 a.m. and rubber duck race at 12:30 p.m.
