Whether wading in the creek scooping up ducks or just enjoying a fun-filled afternoon in the park, kids of all ages love the Murphys Duck Races, part of Murphys Homecoming in Murphys Community Park.
There will be three different “races” in Murphys Creek. After each “heat,” all the kids help corral and collect the hundreds of rubber duckies that have been floating merrily downstream.
To make the races fair for everyone, winners are randomly selected from among all “duck purchasers” during the race. Tickets are available at select times in front of Sierra Hills Market or by calling the Calaveras Mentoring Foundation at 209-736-7706.
