Yellow ducks take to the Tuck in annual race for prizes

Written by 

The popular annual Ducks on the Tuck, with little yellow rubber ducks racing down the Tuckasegee River, will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 29. The ducks will be dropped into Scotts Creek at the train depot bridge in Dillsboro.  

A racing duck can be “adopted” at the Greening Up the Mountains festival this Saturday or at the race for $5. This year’s grand prize is a 40-inch flat screen television. Ducks will also be racing for more than 70 other prizes, which will be awarded at the finish line.  

The money raised goes to support New Century Scholars, a community initiative to provide programming and opportunities for youth. Students who successfully complete the program have the opportunity to attend Southwestern Community College for five semesters without the cost of tuition and fees. After earning a degree at SCC, Western Carolina University has partnered with the program to provide an additional two years with this same guarantee.
