(BEDFORD) - The Fourth Annual Ugly Duck Derby is Saturday, May 28 at 6 p.m. at Thornton Park's John Lowery Pool.

The proceeds from the Ugly Duck Derby benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence County and tickets are on sale now.

Ducks can be purchased for $5 for 1 duck, 5 for $20, or buy a flock of 13 for $50. Ducks can be purchased at the Bedford Parks Department, Super Oldies 105.5 WQRK on Heltonville Road, the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence County, Bailey's Flowers, at M & E Honda, or from any duck committee member.

The evening kicks off with the Celebrity Belly Buster Contest at 6 p.m. followed by 10,000 ducks racing down the water slide.

The first duck to cross the finish line will win its owner a 2 year car lease of a 2016 Ford Focus provided by Bedford Ford. The winner can choose $3,000 cash instead of the car lease.

After the first race, the finals of the Belly Buster contest will be held and then an inflatable relay race between members of the Bedford North Lawrence girls and boys basketball teams will take place.

New this year is a race at the end of the night that is limited to just 100 ducks. These ducks cost $100 each.

The winning duck of this race will win their choice of a 2016 4-wheeler from M&E Honda or $2,500 cash.
