Quack at the Bayou Boogaloo


The weekend after next my family will be entering a Quack Pack in the 3rd Annual Rubber Duck Derby. For the event 15,000 rubber ducks will be dropped into Bayou St. John for a race to the finish line where four lucky ducks will win fantastic prizes:

1st Place – Choice of a Chevy Sonic or Ford Fiesta courtesy of Banner Ford and Chevrolet
2nd Place - $1,000 Rouses gift card
3rd Place – Dinner for 10 at Zea Rotisserie & Grill 
4th Place – Luxury suite for 20 at a New Orleans Zephyrs game

The great race takes place Sunday, May 20, during the Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo Festival.  Ducks will be dropped in Bayou St. John near Orleans Avenue and N. Jefferson Davis Parkway at 4:30 pm

Entering the Rubber Duck Derby is simple; adopt a lucky duck starting at just $5 each for a single duck, “Quack Pack” (6) for $25, a “Flock of Ducks” (25) for $100 and the chance to win prizes.  Each “adopted” duck is assigned a unique race number and entered into the Rubber Duck Derby.  The first 4 ducks to cross the finish line will win prizes.  Ducks are identified by their unique race numbers and will be announced at the conclusion of the race (winners need not be present to win). 

You can adopt a duck online today or by visit the Second Harvest tent near the Orleans Avenue Bridge at Bayou Boogaloo. Everyone that adopts a duck will provide much needed support for Second Harvest Food Bank.
