CAMDEN — “The 2022 Duck Derby went off without a hitch this past Sunday in Camden, although there were plenty of feathers flying throughout the race,” said West Bay Rotary, in a news release.
The annual derby took place Saturday, May 29, 2022. West Bay Rotary provided the following description of the event, along with the ticket numbers for this year’s winners:
Some impressive strategies were in evidence, too, as contestants demonstrated a variety of flocking techniques, some drafting, pirouettes, and, when all else failed, even dunking.
Few made it to the finish without a few bumps and bruises.
Spectators lined Camden Harbor, cheering on their favorites under bright, sunny afternoon skies. All in all, it was another great day for duck-kind!
