MONROE -- 'A Very Merry Commander Christmas' is sure to be one of the hottest events of the Winter season. The Downtown Monroe Alliance, Duck Commander, Friends of the RiverMarket and other organizations are making it all happen to support the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana.
It will be a full day of events on December 14th, including a Duck Commander Look-A-Like contest, Christmas Flotilla, and a laser show. The Duck Derby will take place at 3pm. Ducks are on sale now for the race. You can buy them at all Community Trust Bank branches, the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana, or by clicking here. Ducks are $5 each, but you can get a Quacker Pack for $25. That includes six ducks. Or you could be 'Happy, happy, happy' with The Big Quacker. That includes 100 ducks for $400.
Christie Messenger with the Friends of the RiverMarket says they hope to have 30-thousand ducks in the derby.
First prize wins a private tour of Duck Commander. Second prize is a meet & greet with country star Luke Bryan in May 2014.
Community Trust Bank is the title sponsor for this event.
