The famous duck drop will occur at 4 p.m. on Saturday, just north of The Falls overlook near the Best Western Driftwood Inn. The first ducks to drop over The Falls will be the winners of the 2023 Duck Race! Winners will be announced on the Great Snake River Greenbelt Duck Race and Idaho Falls Rotary Club Facebook pages, as well as local media outlets.
Over the past 32 years, the Rotary Club has raised more than $6.5 million through duck adoptions, with matched funds by the City of Idaho Falls. After event expenses, all of the remaining funds go into making improvements along the River Walk/Greenbelt. For the past six years, the funds have gone toward the development of the city’s newest park along the River Walk – Heritage Park.
