Chance to Win $25,000
The idea is simple—”adopt” a rubber duck and join us at the Brandywine Town Center Fountain as 10,000 individually numbered ducks “race” across the water for a chance to win $25,000 and other great prizes! You do not need to be present to win, but we hope you’ll join us for a “quacking” good time!
Race festivities will begin at 1 pm and include music from 93.7 WSTW with Master of Ceremonies Mike Rossi, a “Tail”gating party at Red Robin, contests and prizes from Camp Bow Wow, vendors, giveaways, facepainting, a moonbounce, photo opps with our mascot “Splash” and more! Ducks can be adopted until 2 pm or sold out.
The race will start around 2:30 pm when the ducks will be propelled across the Fountain. The first 5 ducks to reach the a specially made catch-tube will be plucked from the tube in succession and holders of the corresponding numbers will be awarded prizes.
Racing ducks can be adopted for just $5 each, and packages are available to anyone who wants to increase their odds of winning by purchasing multiple ducks. Adoptions can be completed on this website, in person at DHA’s animal care and adoption center at 701 A Street in Wilmington, at upcoming community events, or by mail using the order form in our event brochure.
