Duck Tape Dayz brings big crowd to a small town
Duck Tape Dayz was the place to be if you were looking for something fun do to do outdoors on Saturday.
This is the second year the community has hosted Cantril Days, and this year's "Duck Tape Dayz" theme brought hundreds of people out for an action-packed day. With three bounce houses, a petting zoo, squirt guns, great food and much more, the event proved to be a place for the entire family to enjoy. You could even win a big cash prize at the highly anticipated â??duck doo dropâ??, which involves rubber ducks being thrown out of a small plane.
â??Actually on the baseball field, we painted a target,â?? organizer Dana Hanna said. â??We sell these ducks for $10 a piece. We've sold 200 of them, and we throw the ducks out of the plane, and the person whose duck lands closest to the target gets half the money.â??
Organizers say the rest of the proceeds will go to the park as they are trying to raise money for a new shelter house at the Cantril Ballpark.
