CONGRATULATIONS TO THIS YEAR’S PRIZE WINNERS! 

Note: We will be reaching out to all winners directly on Monday, August 5th to make arrangements for securing your winnings! Have a wonderful weekend. Thank you to everyone who supported and adopted ducks for the 6th Annual Austin Duck Derby presented by Kidd Roofing!

The 6th Annual Austin Duck Derby presented by Kidd Roofing is the epitome of a fun (and funky) event characteristic of Austin. At this rubber duck derby benefiting Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area and the Austin Boys & Girls Club Foundation, 19,000 eco-friendly rubber ducks will launch from the Ann Richards Bridge to “race” on Lady Bird Lake. The fastest ducks will win fantastic prizes for their duck adoptive parents. Enjoy a family-friendly festival on the grassy knoll behind the Austin American-Statesman from 10 AM to 1 PM, with the infamous Duck Drop at 11 AM. Adopt your own duck(s) online at AustinDuckDerby.com. Or, join in sponsoring the Duck Derby and supporting BGCAA and all the Austin-area kids we serve!

      

We’re thrilled to welcome the return of our Master of Ceremonies from previous years, Amanda Dugan, reporter with KXAN-TV (left). Joining Amanda in leading this year’s Duck Fest activities and calling the race will be 96.7 KISS FM on-air talent Gossip Greg and Trevor Morini (center and right). Folks, we’ve really turned up the heat on this year’s Duck Derby. Be sure to come out and join us on race day to support 19,000 rubber duck shaking their tail feathers on behalf of Great Futures for our Kids!
