The Duck Derby will be held at 1 p.m. at River Park, where the Trails Day activities will also be hosted. The Duck Derby is a fundraiser for Communithon, and the first duck to cross the finish line will win half of the jackpot from the accumulated ticket sales.

Tickets cost $5 each, three for $10 or 10 for $30, and are available at City Hall, the police station, the Public Works building or at the Leisure Centre.

Trails Day will go from 1 to 4 p.m., and will include live music, a magic show, food vendors and bouncy houses.

Performances will be provided by Small City Blues and singer Lindsey Bell, with Richy Roy putting on the magic show. There will also be a scavenger hunt with prizes.

There is no admission charge to attend Trails Day, and residents are asked to bring their own lawn chairs to ensure they have a seat.

In the event of rain, the event will move to the Tom Zandee Sports Arena.
