Freeport, Illinois — They’re cuddly, they’re cute, they’re made of rubber and on September 13 they’re all racing down the creek with a lot of lucky ducks walking away with a nice handful of cash afterwards. The reason?
Remember this past 4th of July when at the last minute the citizens of Freeport had to scramble to raise enough money to ensure fireworks took place in 2018? A new group took over the fireworks last year and they vowed to make sure fundraising would continue throughout the year. One of the biggest complaints people had last year was waiting until the last minute.
A way to have fun with the family, some friends or even the kids throughout the year to help with that is now the 2nd Annual Duck Race where 144 Ducks race down Rock Run Creek. It’s a fun event, supports the fireworks and – you also have a chance to win some extra money.
Here’s how it works.
You buy a Duck, #1-144 and wait for race day on September 13th. Races are held at Rock Run Creek in Rock City off Farm School road. You can pick a number, if still available.
Otherwise, as of this morning (9-11-2018) Ducks #46, 48, 52, 53, 54, 58, 63, 64, 67, 72-77, 80, 81, 84, 87, 90-95, 97 were available at Logan’s in Freeport located at 1805 S West Ave. Just stop in and tell them you want a duck.
