ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Noon Rotary Club will team up to present the second annual St. Charles Ducky Derby, which will take place on Sunday, June 8, during the City of St. Charles RiverFest. Rubber ducks will be dropped into the Fox River at 4:45 p.m. and will head downstream toward the finish line. The first ducks to the finish line will win prizes such as trips, gift certificates, and hotel stays. Both organizations will be offering “duck adoptions” along with adoption centers during the festival.

Ducks, in the form of a raffle ticket, are $5 each and will be available for “adoption” by calling 630-296-7683.

RiverFest takes place from June 6 to 8 at sites throughout St. Charles. For information on the festival, visit
