Q: What is the Great Brevard Duck Race?

A: Get ready to adopt your lucky ducks for the 25th Annual Great Brevard Duck Race! We were hoping 2023 was the return of an in-person race as we have all missed the excitement of being right in the action but due to logistical challenges the race will be virtual. Viewers can watch some quacky fun on on Saturday, March 25th, at 3:30 p.m.

The rubber duckies will race to the finish line to win GREAT prizes for their adopters. Nine lucky winners will be randomly selected, and their names will be announced after the race.

Ducks will be available for adoption until 3 p.m., on race day at Ducks can also be adopted at Community Credit Union branches, Launch Credit Union Branches, Al's Trophy Shop, Inc. (Cocoa), Construction Engineering Group (Melbourne), LLC, Edward Jones - James Szczybor (Melbourne), Anthony Insurance Agency (Viera), Bluewater Creative Group, Inc. (Viera), Savvy Vinyl (Melbourne), Aventine West Melbourne, and Sage Bistro (Cape Canaveral).
