The main event will begin at 2:30 p.m. at the pond at Lincoln Park on West Lauridsen Boulevard.
Some 30,000 yellow toys will be dumped into the pond to float to the finish line — with a little help from the Port Angeles Fire Department's firehoses.
The first rubber duck to make its way across the pond will win a 2014 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck or a Toyota Corolla provided by Wilder Toyota for its ticket-holder.
The next 41 who cross the finish line also will be worth prizes, which total a value of more than $25,000.
A half-hour before the main event, at 2 p.m., the Bub and Alice Olsen Very Important Duck (VID) Race will be held.
Oversized rubber ducks emblazoned with the logos or names of businesses or individuals — each costing $250 or $500 — will run the course.
The derby raises money for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation and Sequim Rotary Club.
Each rubber duck entry costs $5. A flock of six can be purchased for $25.
