18th Annual Duck Races

The 18th Annual Duck Races will take place on Saturday, July 16th in Murphys Community Park, with proceeds benefiting the Calaveras Humane Society and the Hospice Foundation of Northeastern Illinois.

Here’s how it works…
There will be 5 separate races, 2 Kids races and 3 adult races. The purchase of a ticket will enter a duck into the race (the corresponding number of the ticket will match up with a duck). For each race there will be a whopping 300 numbered ducks released into the Murphys Creek at the Bridge just off Main Street. The races begin at 2:00 pm.

The Ducks will race down to the bridge in the Murphys Community Park and the first 3 to cross the line will win prizes. The prizes are all donated from local merchants in and around Calaveras County. Adult prizes will include wine, dinner certificates and gift certificates from local shops. Kid prizes will include pizza and movie coupons, toys and more.

Happy duck racing!
