Smart Start Ducky Derby Closing Garnett Street Saturday September 29th

There will be no parking on Garnett Street from Breckenridge Street to Horner Street from 12:00 noon until 3:00 pm on Saturday, September 29th, 2012 for the Ducky Derby race.

Violators will be towed at the owners expense if found in violation.

We appreciate your cooperation with keeping Garnett Street clear between these hours.

This fundraising event will benefit the children of Vance County and FGV Smart Start.

Flyers are also posted along Garnett Street businesses announcing the street closure.

To be clear, if you’ve parked your car on Garnett Street in the morning, it must be moved by 12noon.  Not only will the street be closed to traffic, but all cars parked on Garnett Street will be towed, as the street is filled with water and ducks race several blocks to the finish line.
