Carnival of Fun, ‘Wacky Quacky Duck Splash’ returns to Proksa Park

Berwyn, IL

Joel Dealba of Berwyn enjoys a ride on a pony during the Wacky Quacky Duck Splash held at Proska Park Saturday July 18, 2009. The event helps raise money for WSSRA and the Berwyn Park District programming.

This year’s Carnival of Fun, including the Wacky Quacky Duck Splash, will take place from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday in Proksa Park, 3001 Wisconsin Ave.

The event will include carnival games, a track-less train and a craft table.

The carnival’s signature event, the duck splash, allows participants to “adopt” a plastic duck to be raced down the park’s creek. The top 10 ducks in the race will win prizes of up to $500 for their sponsors.

Ducks can be bought for $5 each or three ducks for $13.

Proceeds from the event, which is sponsored by the Berwyn Park District, will benefit the West Suburban Special Recreation Association
