A long running tradition will continue in Lumsden this weekend.
The Duck Derby is back for it’s 31st year on the Labour Day Monday.
The event will see thousands of ducks dropped into the Qu’Appelle River, then heading down to the Lumsden ball diamonds, where at least one ‘lucky duck’ will walk away with at least $20,000.
Harry Seidlitz is the event co-chair. And rain or shine, the Derby’s going on.
“Our backup plan has always been the Lumsden rink,” he said. “It usually works out pretty well, we can move most of the crafters and beer gardens into the rink.”
The event supports recreation in the town, keeping registration costs as low as possible.
