29th Annual Great Rubber Duck Race

The Hudson Auto Source Kids Duck Dash will kick-off the three duck races at 1 p.m., as 800 ducks are dropped by Red, White, and Blue Fire from the Adams Street Bridge into the Blue River. More than 40 prizes for the Kids Race are being donated by Peak-A-Boo Toys and Vail Resorts Epic Promise, among others.

The second of the three races begins at 2 p.m. from Main Street Station. FirstBank of Summit County is sponsoring this Business Battle Duck Race, where little yellow swimmers purchased by local organizations and businesses will compete for a private cat-ski trip, as well as additional group-oriented prizes. Be sure to check out the decorated Business Battle Ducks on display throught Main Street Station plaza. You will be amazed at the creativity!

And finally at 3 p.m., the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Great Rubber Duck Race will send nearly 11,000 little quackers from Main Street Station streaming for the finish line at the Riverwalk Center. Fabulous prizes will be awarded to a minimum of the top 50 ducks, including a week-long vacation at a destination chosen by the winner.

Blue River Plaza will be filled with family friendly activities all day in our Duck Village, including face-painting, kids amusements, and delicious Higgles Ice Cream!
