SHEBOYGAN FALLS CHAMBER-MAIN STREET will hold its 28th annual Ducktona 500 Family Festival and Classic Car Show Sunday, July 3, at River Park in Sheboygan Falls from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. - Falls News file photo by Jeff Pederson SHEBOYGAN FALLS CHAMBER-MAIN STREET will hold its 28th annual Ducktona 500 Family Festival and Classic Car Show Sunday, July 3, at River Park in Sheboygan Falls from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. - Falls News file photo by Jeff Pederson After adding a number of new activities to its menu of family friendly offerings a year ago, Sheboygan Falls Chamber-Main Street will be putting even more on its plate for the 28th annual Ducktona 500 Family Festival, Classic Car and Antique Boat Show Sunday, July 3, at River Park in Sheboygan Falls.

This year’s event, which runs from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., will mark the culmination of the Strengthening Community-Supporting Our Heroes campaign with a new kids safety area, as well as the debut of a new area dedicated to a remote controlled boat demonstration in the River Park lagoon.

In addition, nearly all of the favorite Ducktona activities will return, including the popular classic car show, antique boat show, petting zoo, pony rides, Big Wheel races, free kids zone, dunk tank challenge, vendor fair, pancake breakfast, food court and musical entertainment.

The new free Kids’ Safety Area, sponsored by Falls Ace Hardware and Greg Bovre State Farm Insurance, will feature personnel from the Sheboygan Falls Fire Department, Sheboygan Falls Police Department, EMTs and the Sheboygan County Dive Team doing demonstrations in the River Park lagoon.

Smoke detectors will be available for a freewill offering, as well as free children’s ID kits.

A fire truck-themed children’s quilt raffle will be held with proceeds benefitting the Strengthening Community-Supporting our Heroes campaign.

Donations will also be accepted throughout the day for the Strengthening Community-Support Our Heroes campaign with all funds going to support the Sheboygan Falls Fire Department.

“We will be making our final collection for the Strengthening Community-Supporting Our Heroes campaign at Ducktona,” Sheboygan Falls Chamber-Main Street Executive Director Shirl Breunig said. “This campaign is to recognize the heroic service of our fire department, especially over the past year with all they dealt with during the tragic fire in our community in January.

“So far, we have raised over $4,000, which will go for fire department training initiatives,” she said. “We are so grateful for the generosity displayed by our community in response to the tragedy involving the Maki family. We hope to raise even more money during Ducktona.”

Also new this year are remote controlled boat demonstrations in the River Park lagoon by the RC Boat Club of Milwaukee.

“We are excited to be able to make use of the lagoon this year in the kids safety area and with the RC boat demonstrations,” Breunig said. “We had always thought about incorporating the lagoon with an activity during Ducktona, but we could never quite find the right fit. I think we have done so
