The best part is that guests do not need to be present to win!

We are looking for locations around town to place our large plywood ducks that help us advertise the event to locals and visitors. Please let me know if you're interested in hosting a duck outside of your business until Labor Day. We will deliver, set up, and remove the duck for you!


We're looking for prizes for our event! Donate a gift certificate, t-shirt, puzzle, admission tickets, lodging stays, games! We love to have a variety of prizes and it really makes the event when we can give out multiple prizes.


We have volunteer opportunities Saturday, and Sunday at our ticket booth, outside the Chamber office and we'll need all hands on deck for Monday of Labor Day weekend for setup, clean up, event ticketing, entertainment, and duck corralling.

Check out the online sign up to view volunteer opportunities. Did you know that Chamber Members earn $5 per each hour volunteered off their next year's Chamber dues.
