The Sioux Falls Downtown Duck Derby will make its debut at the Downtown River Greenway on Saturday, May 17.  Thousands of ducks will race down the Big Sioux River, and the first ten across the finish line will win great prizes including $2,500 cash, a $1,000 Riddles Jewelry shopping spree, a weekend in Downtown Sioux Falls, a family fun package, a camping package to Inspiration Hills and many more!

Adopt your ducks today.  One for $5, a 6-quack for $25, 12 for $50 or 25 for $100.

The family fun starts at 11am at the River Greenway, including face painting, food vendors and mascots. The ducks will be dropped into the river off the 8th street bridge and begin racing at noon.  The first 10 through the finish line win the race.

All proceeds will benefit South Dakota Voices for Children, the only multi-issue child advocacy organization in South Dakota.
