2018 Fiesta Bowl Running of the Bills Duck Race
The 2018 Fiesta Bowl Running of the Bills Duck Race returns to Arizona this weekend to kick off our first duck race of the season.
The SRP Fiesta Bowl Running of the Bills Duck Race takes place on Saturday, March 10, 2018. The event runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Scottsdale Waterfront Canal. The day is going to be filled with food, music and lots of yellow rubber ducks! The highlight will be watching 15,000 ducks launch and float down the Scottsdale Waterfront Canal while spectators cheer on their ducks. Proceeds from the duck race benefit Fiesta Bowl Charities. Fiesta Bowl strives to enhances organizations that contribute to the success of their communities through youth, sports and education. Through charitable giving, the organization continues to enhance nonprofit organizations across Arizona by contributing $2.5 million during the 2017-2018 season alone and $10 million in the last seven years.
This year, there is a Cornhole Tournament that is going on during the duck race. All cornhole participants will receive a duck adoption with their team entry.
The VID Duck Adoption Package gives the duck adopter some special perks. You receive a prime view of the duck race from a private patio, food and drink tickets and interactive games.
