Were you there for the First Annual Duck Race? It was an exciting event as the ducks were launched in Mill Creek! Onlookers lined the banks of Mill Creek to watch the ducks as first one and then the other took the lead. The "duck herders" followed at the end keeping all the ducks moving through the snags and eddies . This made the race more exciting as the snagged ducks were freed to zoom ahead. Cheering and shouts could be heard along the bank. Nothing was certain until the end when all the ducks finally made it to the finish line at the edge of the lake.
