26th Annual Great Acadania Running of the Ducks
After a nice, long, and well-deserved winter break off, the Derby Ducks are back and 2016 Derby Duck Race Season is finally here! The ducks are more ready than ever to race and raise funds for quacktastic nonprofit organizations across the world. The first race of the year takes place this Saturday, March 12, 2016 in Lafayette, LA. The 26th Annual Great Acadiana Running of the Ducks returns to Red’s health club for a ducky morning at the pool! From 10:30am – 12:00pm EST duck race fans can enjoy music, family-friendly activities, visit with Quacky the Duck, and have fun! At 12pm 30,000 Derby Ducks will slide down the waterslide into the pool. Then, they will race to win one of 14 ducktastic prizes!
This year’s prizes include weekly combo meals for a year to Sonic and Burgersmith, a $500 Visa gift card, custom jewelry from Armento Jewelers and Lee Michael’s Jewelry, and more! The quickest duck will win the grand prize of a 2016 Mazda M3 from Acadiana Mazda!
The best part of this quacky day is all the funds raised will directly benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana! The Boys & Girls Clubs provides:
- A safe place for children to learn and grow…
- Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals…
- Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences…
- Hope and opportunity!
Adopt a Duck and Help a Child’s Future! Don’t miss out on this quacktacular event!
