Hundreds of little yellow ducks will be sold for $5 each and be entered into a duck race down the Ohio River.  The race begins at 5 p.m.
“The ducks will be dumped into the  river at the Ripley Boat Club,” said Ronda Pendland, treasurer for the Ohio Rural Heritage Festival, sponsors of the duck race event. “People in boats will follow the ducks down the river until they arrive at the finish line just below the Main Stage.
“This is something everyone, no matter their age, can participate in, and it’s so much fun. We encourage everyone to purchase a duck and take part in the event. No one knows who’s going to win.”
Prizes for the winners of the event will be:
• 1st duck to reach the finish line will receive $500
• 2nd duck to cross the finish line will receive $250
• LAST duck to cross the finish line will win $50
In its continuing efforts to raise funds for the Ohio Rural Heritage Festival Association, a raffle will be held at 9 p.m. on Saturday. Raffle tickets are currently being sold and will continue to be available for purchase right up to the drawing. Tickets will be sold during the festival and may also be purchased at the Ripley Builders Supply.
The first place  in the drawing will win a new John Deere D110 riding lawn mower or $1000 cash.
The second prize winner will take home a Winchester 18 Gun Safe, or $200, and the third prize is a John Deere Tricycle or $50.
