At the Rotary Club of Northglenn and Thornton, we race thousands of rubber ducks in Northglenn, and the first 150+ ducks across the line win a prize. Adopting a duck is easy, choose how many ducks you’d like to be a part of your family and you’ll be off to the races.
1st Place = $2,000
2nd Place = $1,000
3rd Place and after = Numerous prizes that have ranged from bikes, TVs, and gift cards
*Most prizes are worth more than $35, and we usually have more than 150 winners!
Purchase a GIANT DUCK and you can win prizes in TWO ways. Your Duck competes in its own GIANT DUCK derby race, AND you can dress up your Duck to compete in the Best Dressed People’s Choice competition. Both events have great prizes!
If you choose to dress up your Duck, we’ll deliver your duck to you so you can decorate it. Ducks need to be returned to us by July 1st to be entered into the Best Dressed Duck Contest!
