Fall City gets a lot of good out of its annual Ducky Derby.

Now North Bend will begin a new rubber duck race tradition, the Festival at Mount Si Duck Derby, planned for 3:15 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 14, as a fundraiser for the Snoqualmie Valley Veteran's Memorial fund.

The event is sponsored by Emerald City Smoothie.

Entrants can buy a duck for $5, and the toys that come in tops can win their owners one of dozens of prizes. You do not need to be present to win.

Tickets can be purchased at Emerald City Smoothie and at the Festival at Mount Si.
