Event: 2nd Annual Ducky Derby Kick-off Party, June 12, 2015


The ducks are coming to Austin, again! The Second Annual Austin Duck Derby will feature 10,000 yellow adopted rubber ducks launched into the Lady Bird Lake which will race to the finish line winning prizes for their adopters like a new car, motorcycle and more. Proceeds from every duck adopted benefit the Austin Boys and Girls Club Foundation, a non-profit organization which supports and provides valuable assistance to the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Austin Area which operate 22 clubs. Proceeds from the Derby help over 12,000 kids each year (and over 1,700 each day) grow into healthy, responsible, caring young adults.Advertisement

The family-friendly event will feature face painting, duck adoptions, prizes, giveaways and more! You can adopt as many ducks as you would like at the kick-off party or online.
