Giant Quacky on the Move to Another Duck Race

Game Events Derby Duck Race, Fundraising, Fundraising Community

Giant Quacky is on the move. Where is his next stop? On the biggest city on the Illinois River: Peoria! Join Giant Quacky at the Riverfront Park in East Peoria to support The Center for Prevention of Abuse’s 26th Annual Duck Race. All month long Peoria has been prepping for their race with adoption events, a Duck Dash, a Hatching Party for Giant Quacky’s arrival, movie night, and Kid’s Day!  The fun continues this week with tagging of the Derby Ducks on Wednesday, Aug. 20 and the Business After Hours event on Thursday, Aug. 21. On Saturday, Aug. 23 the duck race begins! From 12-3pm CT ducky fans will enjoy food, music, and children’s activities. Then at 2pm 30,000 Derby Ducks will be launched into the river for a shot at some ducktastic prizes:

  • $1,500 gift card to Sherman’s
  • $1,000 gift card to Macy’s
  • $500 gift card to Kroger
  • $500 gift card to Shoppes at Grand Prairie
  • $250 gift card to Hy-Vee
  • $250 gift card to Walmart
  • $100 gift card to Casey’s General Stores
  • $100 gift card to Jeffrey Alans
  • $100 gift card to Little Caesars


But the quickest duck will win the ultimate grand prize: $5,000 cash sponsored by Associated Bank. The best part of Giant Quacky’s adventure is he will get to see all the proceeds donated to The Center for Prevention of Abuse, a nonprofit organization who provides safety and support to over 5,000 women, men, and children who have been affected by domestic violence, sexual assault/abuse, elder abuse, and abuse of adults with disabilities. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to hang out with the World’s Largest Inflatable Duck. Race a Duck, Stop Abuse. For more information about this race, please visit
