Duck Races

Join Neighbors for a day of fun during South St. Paul‘s On the Road Again festival! All proceeds from the Duck Races will be used locally to support Neighbors, Inc.’s emergency and supportive programs.

Want a chance to win?

This year’s grand prize is a destination dinner for two! Throughout the summer, we’ll be asking for the community’s help in determining five locations across the continental U.S. for the winner to choose from. Keep an eye on our website, Facebook page and Twitter feed for details!

Ducks are just $5 and the proceeds go to a good cause! While we can’t accept payments for the Duck Races online due to gambling laws, certificates are available by calling our office or via download. Once you’ve got a printed copy, fill out the necessary information and return it to Neighbors along with your payment. On race day, every duck will be entered in a preliminary race/heat, and the top finishers in each heat go on to race in the finals at the end of the day. Prizes are awarded to the top three finishers in the final race, and the last duck to finish that race — dubbed the Lazy Duck — also receives a prize. The winner of each heat throughout the day will also receive a prize.
