2nd annual Duck Derby at Canalside

Buffalo is going a bit quackers these days, with all of its duck oriented events. Not only is a gigantic rubber ducky coming to the Inner Harbor this month (see here), Rotary Club of Buffalo is also hosting its 2nd annual Duck Derby at Canalside.

The idea behind Duck Derby is fairly simple. People adopt a rubber duck, and then set it free to race from The Blue Line Bridge. Along with a ton of tiny rubber ducks competing towards the finishing line, there will be plenty of other activities for the entire family, including face painting, balloons, clowns, and local food trucks. 

Each duck is a $10 donation. The money raised at the Duck Derby will go towards Rotary Club of Buffalo – an organization that is constantly doing incredible deeds for the community. Previous grant recipients include Rotary Rink, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fontana Boathouse, Willie Hutch Jones Educational & Sports Programs, Computers for Children, Olmsted Center for Sight, Cradle Beach, and Buffalo Police Athletic Association (PAL).

Duck Derby participants can pre-order their little rubber duckies in advance, by clicking here. Contestants can also purchase a duck on the day of the race. Prizes include $250 for first place; $125 for second place and $75 for third place.

Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
