2018 Floyd Chamber Rubber Duck Race

August 25 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

SustainFloyd is proud to be a sponsor for the 2018 Floyd Chamber Rubber Duck Race. Come out and see our Solar Voltzwagon on duty!

Come for an admission-free, family-friendly time on the river that immediately follows Floyd’s Little River Cleanup Day, also at On The Water in Floyd. For more info about the cleanup day and to sign up as a volunteer, visit floydcova.org.

Watch the rubber duck race.
Enjoy a $5 grilled hot dog or hamburger meal.
Rock to summertime, fun music.

Top prize for the winning duck number is $300, 2nd place wins $200 and 3rd place duck is $100. The last place duck gets a gift basket as the “Running On Floyd Time” booby prize.

The Duck Drop is at 1:30pm. For $5 a duck, you can have a numbered duck assigned to you and be eligible for one of the cash prizes. The more tickets you purchase, the greater your chance to win. Those with duck numbers do not need to be present to win.

Duck number ticket sales also on sale at Chamber/Visitor Center. Chamber board members and staff will also be selling tickets. Online duck number ticket sales end at 6pm, Friday, August 24th. Duck tickets will be available onsite from 12pm to 1:15pm on Saturday, August 25th.

The start of the race is the bridge at the intersection of Slusher Store Road and Thunderstruck Lane and the end of the race is just past the intersection of Thunderstruck and Sowers Road. The food and music are also at On The Water.

This is a family-friendly event with activities just for kids and other family friendly activities. Kayaks, canoes, SUPs and tubes are available for rental on site.

In case of inclement weather that makes river hazardous for the rubber duck race, the event will be postponed.
