Happy first day of October! It seems like the summer duck race season flew by but we still have seven more ducktastic races left in the season starting with two this Saturday. Check them out!
Take a trip to the famous San Antonio Riverwalk for The Ford Riverwalk Lucky Duck Race & Concert on October 4, 2014. Starting at 12pm CT join duck spectators at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts for a fun-filled afternoon of food, ducks, and a free concert by Mitch Webb & The Swindles. 15,000 Derby Ducks will swim their way to victory to win one of three prizes: Grand Prize – a 2-year lease on a Ford Fiesta, 2nd place – a pair of gold pearl and diamond drop earrings, 3rd place – a $1,000 H-E-B gift card!
Produced by the Paseo del Rio Association, all Duck Adoption proceeds will benefit the San Antonio Food Bank whose mission is to fight hunger in the Southwest Texas through food distribution, programs, education, and advocacy. Every $1 raised by the Duck Race will provide seven meals in the community and a $5 Duck Adoption will provide 35 meals! Adopt a Duck and feed the hungry!
