The race will be held in Swain County for the first time in its 14-year history, with the event staged at Riverfront Park in Bryson City.
“We’re excited about bringing Ducks on the Tuck to Swain County,” said Mary Selzer, director of the SCC Foundation. “Our plans at this point are to rotate Ducks on the Tuck between our three counties, so it will be in Macon County next year. Regardless of where the race is held, people can designate which county their donation will benefit.”
Community members “adopt” ducks for a fee, and the winning duck garners a prize for its owner.
