Rubber Duck Regatta 2016

Buy a duck feed a childThe 2016 Rubber Duck Regatta where yellow duckies soar.  You have a chance to win great prizes and help the Freestore Foodbank at the same time!

The “buy-a-duck” email reminder arrived  poking me to buy some ducks. It’s a great way to help your friends and neighbors living in our community.

The 22nd Annual Rubber Duck Regatta takes place at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 4 prior to the Western & Southern/WEBN Fireworks.  As many as 200,000 ducks will soar from the Purple People Bridge and swim in the Ohio River near the Serpentine Wall. .

All the proceeds benefit the Freestore Foodbank who distributes over 12 million pounds of food each year through a dedicated network of over 325 local Member Agencies.

A $5 donation buys a numbered duck and if your rubber ducky floats across the finish line first- you win a car. If you have a few extra dollars $25 buys 6 ducks. So in addition to helping others- you get the opportunity to cheer on your duck in the race- a win/win.

Good luck, I hope you enjoy watching the ducks fly!  It’s a fun event that helps feed our greater Cincinnati neighbors.
