Q: What is the Great Brevard Duck Race?

A: The Great Brevard Duck Race is a fun event that brings the community together in support of helping change lives and gives hope to youth that receive services at Crosswinds Youth Services. We are so grateful for our community’s ongoing partnership. Your generous support will help us continue to work diligently to provide essential services for children, youth and families in crisis. The 24th Annual Great Brevard Duck Race will be held at the newly renovated Lee Wenner Park, downtown Cocoa Village, on Saturday, April 2nd, at approximately 3:30 p.m., after the Central Florida Car Show. Over 10,000 Ducks will tumble, splash, and bob their way down the Indian River. Amazing prizes will be given to the lucky duck winners, including the Grand Prize, a 2 year lease on a new car, courtesy of Space Coast Honda!
