Water wings and wetsuits may appear by the City Yacht Basin Saturday morning during a fundraiser for the Susquehanna Hose Company.

The third annual Duck Dunk will send participants into the water at 10 a.m. on Saturday, when the National Weather Service reports it will be approximately 34 degrees.

Coordinating the event is the Susquehanna Hose Company, which uses the funds raised from the Duck Dunk to support the volunteer fire department.

It costs $35 to do the dunk, either in pledges or donations. The top three fund-raisers who bring in more than $150 will receive prizes. Each registrant receives a Susquehanna Hose Company Duck Dunk t-shirt, while supplies last. 

From 8 p.m. Friday until closing, Bill Bateman's Bistro (2021 Pulaski Highway) will donate 15 percent of proceeds to the Susquehanna Hose Company if patrons—both dine in and carryout—present this Duck Dunk flyer.

Bill Bateman's Bistro is also providing registration and free breakfast for dunkers from 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday. Registration for the Duck Dunk will be available, too, at Tydings Park (Commerce at S. Washington Street) from 8 to 9:45 a.m. The dunk is set for 10 a.m. sharp.
