The duck race will begin at 11:00 am with the launch of 19,000 eco-friendly rubber ducks into Lady Bird Lake. Austinites are invited to participate by adopting one or multiple ducks to compete in the race, with individual prizes to be awarded for top-finishing ducks.
Festivities will include live music from Cilantro Boombox, with Master of Ceremonies Amanda Dugan, reporter for KXAN-TV, and 96.7 KISS FM’s on-air talent Gossip Greg and Trevor Morini facilitating the Duck Fest fun.
The Downtown Austin Alliance is proud to support this event. Proceeds from duck adoptions benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area together with the Austin Boys and Girls Club Foundation—ensuring that thousands of local youth can reach their full potential to become productive, caring and responsible citizens.
