The Humane Society 2012 Duck Derby

The Humane Society will be hosting its Second Annual Duck Derby on Saturday, August 11th, 2012 from 12:00 – 5:00 PM. The event will be held on the Chenango River behind the Holiday Inn Arena in downtown Binghamton.

At approximately 3:00 PM at least 10,000 rubber ducks will be dropped off the Court Street Bridge and race down the river competing for cash prizes. First place prize is $3,500 and there is a chance someone can win $1,000,000!

Starting at 12:00 there will be live music, food, crafts, games, and vendor booths. In addition, some of The Humane Society’s adoptable animals will be onsite for meet and greets. Animal cruelty investigator and local law enforcement K-9 units will also be on site.

Adopt a duck today for your chance to win! Ducks can be adopted online at www.duckrace.com/binghamton, at The Humane Society, or at any Manley’s Mighty Mart.

The Humane Society is an independent, non-profit animal welfare organization. We receive no government funding and are dedicated to the prevention of animal cruelty and finding permanent, loving homes for companion animals. Our office is located at 2 Jackson Street in Binghamton.

We hope you’ll be able to join us… It will be Ducky!
