Presented by Busey Bank Naperville
Hosted by the Naperville Riverwalk Foundation
To celebrate Naperville’s crown jewel, 2,000 plastic ducks will “race” in the DuPage River from the foot bridge near Centennial Park to the Eagle Street Bridge near the Naperville Municipal Center.
All proceeds will benefit the Riverwalk Foundation for education and enhancements along the winding brick path of the city’s natural treasure in the heart of the central business district.
Duck racers do not have to be present to win.
Ducks are $5 each
Quack Pack – 5 ducks for $20
Family Flock – 25 ducks for $100
Duck Battalion – 50 ducks for $175
Duck Brigade – 100 ducks for $325
Duck Army – 250 ducks for $750
Decorate your own Jumbo Duck!
A limited number of Jumbo Sponsor Ducks are available for $100 each. Jumbo Sponsor Ducks can be reserved by emailing [email protected]
If modified, Jumbo Ducks may or may not be disqualified at the Race Committee’s discretion. (e.g. attaching a battery powered motor to the Jumbo Duck.)
Cash prizes will be given to 13 duck adopters.
The first three ducks to finish the race will receive cash prizes, $1981, $500 and $250 in that order.
A $35 Lucky Ducky Drawing will recognize 10 lucky ducky winners with $35 each. Lucky Ducky numbers will be drawn at random just prior to the Riverwalk Duck Race.
Remember! Let wildlife be wild! Feeding human snacks and bread crumbs to ducks, geese and other waterfowl is harmful to the health of wildlife and to the environment.
Special thanks to our sponsors! Busey Bank Naperville and Positively Naperville.
