On Sunday, September 10, 2017 from 10a.m.-2p.m. Genoa will be home to hundreds of ducks-plastic ducks that is.
The Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce will host its 14th annual Great Genoa Duck Race and Family Fun Event at Carrol Memorial Park. Launch time is at 1:00 pm.
About 2000 little plastic ducks will be available for adoption, but the actual number waddling in will depend on ticket sales. Participants in the duck race purchase ducks that have numbers printed on the bottom that match their ticket. Ducks will be available for $5 for two or a flock of 12 for $25.
The lucky duck that comes in first will win $500. Second prize is $250 and third prize $100. The person whose duck comes in last will be compensated for their embarrassment of adopting the “laziest” duck with $50.
Duck Tickets are available now at several local businesses or can be purchased at the Chamber office. For more information call the Chamber at 815.784.2212.
