The Summit Foundation 28th Annual Great Rubber Duck Races
presented by Breckenridge Grand Vacations
Saturday September 5, 2015
Breckenridge Riverwalk Center
Join The Summit Foundation and thousands of spectators on Saturday, September 5th near the Blue River in Breckenridge to enjoy the 28th Annual Great Rubber Duck Race sponsored by Breckenridge Grand Vacations.
The Hudson Auto Source Kids Duck Dash will kick-off the three duck races at 1 p.m., as 750 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 at FirstBank of Breckenridge the week prior to the races. The day of the race the decorated ducks will be on display throughout 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 10,000 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.
Ducks may be adopted online at summitfoundation.org or at various locations around Summit County beginning the first week of August. Thousands of dollars in prizes will be awarded ….even a prize for the slowest duck.
This event would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors, donors, volunteers, board members, staff, and of course all of our duck participants. Thank you to our River Spot Sponsors Climax Molybdenum, Kaiser Permanente, PeakOne Surgery Center, Vail Resorts Epic Promise, and Vail-Summit Orthopaedics.
