Event Description

The Duck Derby is a race whereby community members can adopted a rubber duck that is entered into a race down a water way. On August 20th at approximately 3pm, at least 5,000 yellow rubber ducks will be dropped into the river off of the Court Street Bridge. The Ducks will ‘race’ down the river toward Confluence Park. The person who has adopted the winning duck will receive $3,500, with second place being $1,000 and third place being $500. There is a chance that one ducky person will win $1,000,000.

Throughout the event we will have vendors in the Holiday Inn and BU parking lot along with live music and great food!

Visit with the Humane Society adoptable pets, the zoo mobile, and many other animals all while cheering your duck on!
