I have lived in Orange County for almost 40 years and I have never once been to Wild Rivers Water Park.
But, I'm going to go this year!
I won't be going just for the fun rides though. My main reason for going is to join in the fun with the Rubber Ducky Derby.
I've always wanted to enter one of these contests. Have you heard of them before?
You can "adopt" a rubber duck for a donation. Your duck is given a number and entered into the race.
All the ducks are then dropped into the water at the same time and float down to the finish line.
The first few ducks to cross the finish line. There are several prizes to be won.
You can even win up to one MILLION dollars! Wow!
Plus you're helping a good cause. The money is all donated to the Children's Bureau which helps abused children.
On top of all this, you get a free entry into Wild Rivers to go on all the rides yourself. So, you can't lose.
This doesn't take place until Oct. 2, 2011 but, I wanted to get the word out to everyone.
I have read that Wild Rivers is going to close and the rubber duck derby is the last day they will be open. They plan to tear it down and build apartments.
So, if you are in the area, I hope you too will go and race along with me. To find out more info you can click here to read more.
No, I'm not getting paid for this post. I just thought it was a great cause and also a super good deal for anyone interested.
