The Mount Rainier Pool will raffle off tickets to the Festival of Sail the next two weekends at the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market.

The Festival of Sail on Tacoma's Thea Foss Waterway will display tall-masted ships from all over the country and include tours and associated events. The world's largest inflated rubber duck will be on display as part of the event. The Festival of Sail will run June 15-18.

The raffle on June 3 and June 10 will be for two multi-day pass tickets for the Festival of Sail, plus a Momma Duck T-shirt.

The raffle proceeds will go to support the pool's youth swimming programs.

"We will be having a raffle to raise funds for swimming scholarships," said Gene Achziger, outreach coordinator for the pool.

"Proceeds go to the scholarship fund to get disadvantaged youth into the pool for lessons," he said.

Raffle tickets are $5 each.

"You generally don't see the tall ships here. And the duck is as tall as some of the tall-masted ships," Achziger said.

The raffle is called "Feed the Ducks," and donations will go into duck-shaped collection bins at the market.
