Duck Derby on the Wallkill River

Vision of Wallkill and Wallkill Senior Celebration Committee hosted their inaugural Duck Derby on the Wallkill River on Saturday, May 14 at 3:00 pm. Hundreds of people came to support and watched this fun event to benefit Wallkill’s Senior Class. Thousands of yellow rubber ducks were launched into the Wallkill River at Popp Park, each contended to cross the finish line to claim a coveted “Fastest Duck” award and cash prize.  Volunteer kayakers helped to corral and ushered the floating ducks along the Wallkill River. Anyone wishing to volunteer for next year's event (expert kayakers are greatly needed), email VOW now.
