How does the Duck Derby work?

When you purchase your duck adoption, your name will be paired with a number. All of the "adoption numbers" will be placed on super cute rubber ducks sporting sunglasses. All of the adopted ducks will then be released into Lake Lanier at 5:30pm on Saturday, May 11th, 2019 at Lake Lanier Olympic Park (Clarks Bridge Park) to race down a 1/10 mile course. The first duck to come in will win their adoptive parent $10,000 while each of ten (10) following ducks will win awesome prizes. For more questions about the rules of the race, please see the Rules page.

Do I get a rubber duck to keep?

No. The rubber ducks for the race will be shipped to the race site just a few days before May 11, with just enough time to get them all numbered. Once the race is over, the rubber ducks are retrieved from the lake and shipped out to their forever home. Non-numbered, souvenir ducks are available for purchase the day of the event.

What Family Friendly Fun can I expect?

Come enjoy free admission, free parking before 5:30 pm, bounce houses, face painting, petting zoo, and other free kid friendly activities. Stay for the Fly Betty Band who will play right after the Duck Race at 6:00 pm. Grab some grub at Jimmy's Real Pit BBQ, and Hot Dog Ninja food trucks. Stop by Tap It for beer and wine (ID Required).
