These are the Official Rules for the 2018 "Reedy River Duck Derby Day Hat Contest," sponsored by Locally Epic to win one of 3 prizes to be given away at Falls Park on May 5, 2018 (the "Contest"). The Reedy River Duck Derby Day Hat Contest will be judged on 2 criteria: Most Creative, Most Glamorous and Fedoras are welcome as well.
