Join RiversEdge West for their 2nd Annual Rubber Ducky race, set to take place at the Grand Valley River Fest on May 13th at 3 pm. Purchase a numbered rubber ducky (or several) and watch it float down a course on butterfly lake; the winner will go home with a Rado Hala paddleboard* worth $1,149!

1 duck for $25
5 ducks for $100
10 ducks for $200
You do not need to be present to win! The race will be live-streamed - so anyone anywhere can participate and watch their duckies race! (Winner will pay shipping and handling costs if not located in Grand Junction, CO).
Please note! Due to higher-than-average flows, the race has been relocated to butterfly lake which is located on the festival grounds of the Grand Valley River Fest (near the Bonsai and Chriti Reece building).

Only 400 ducks sold; get yours before they sell out!
Buy ducks in advance or at the event. Online ticket sales will close at midnight on Friday, May 12th. In-person ticket sales at the festival will close on Saturday, May 13th at 2:30 pm. Rubber ducky race proceeds go towards RiversEdge West's Education and River Stewardship programs. 
Free Admission.
