This year’s Johnny Stallings Memorial Great Paris Turtle Float is set for May 25, 2019, at Love Civic Center in Paris.
Thousands of rubber turtles will be poised to float down the culvert to raise money for the Boys & Girls Club of the Red River Valley.
Each turtle is $10 apiece, or a heard of 11 for $100, and the money goes toward the club.
First place prize is $3,000, second place prize is $2,000 and third place is $1,000. Ten turtles will be selected at random after the event for a $50 prize each.
