Our 2017 Rubber Ducky Race was featured on "Cake Boss" with the biggest rubber ducky cake you'll ever see!!! Watch here!


The Rubber Ducky Race is an extremely popular community event where hundreds of people come to enjoy the day and participate for a chance to win some great prizes. 

Sponsors help make the day possible!  And in return for your help, we'll make sure your name gets plenty of visability. As a sponsor, your name will appear in all pre- and post-publicity for the event as well as in signage at the park on race day. 

Last year we introduced the special "Sponsor Race" using distinctive red and white striped ducks. We will be continuing this new tradition and are pleased to announce that a special prize will be given to the winning sponsor. 

We are once again offering sponsorships at three levels: Platinum - $500, Gold - $250, and Silver $100.
