At the sound of the starter pistol, approximately 2,000 plastic ducks will be dropped into the Fox River tributary for a race downstream toward the finish line. Prizes are awarded to the ticket holders of the first, second and third duck to cross the finish line. The first place winner could win the "Lucky Duck" prize of $10,000 if their number matches one of ten pre-selected numbers in a sealed envelope. If the number does not match, they win the first place prize. Ticket holders need not be present to win.
Tickets are $5 per duck OR a you may purchase a Quack Pack – 5 ducks for $20.
Tickets are sold at the Rotary booth throughout PrairieFest. Advance tickets may be purchased prior to the event each year. Check the website for updates as this year's race quickly approaches.
