If you are not sure what a Big Daddy Duck race is, here is the short version: we talk to local businesses and convince them to support our club by donating $100 per duck for the race. They then get a 10" rubber duck to decorate and participate in the race. The participating businesses will have the duck displayed at our booth at Start of Summer (we get a lot of traffic!), they will have their duck in the parade, they will have their logo on our website for 1 year, and they can participate in Duck Prize to see which duck is the most popular in Rockford (online voting).  We award trophies for fastest, prettiest and slowest duck as well.  
 
MOST POPULAR DUCK CROWNED:  PJF's duck won the most popular duck vote finishing with 4427 votes!  That is an all time record for the Duck Prize contest. Congratulations to PJF.  They will receive the most popular duck traveling trophy.  Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's contest.  
PRETTIEST DUCK: Luxhoj Consulting (Thanos duck)
FASTEST DUCK: Lipe Industrial Services (via a drawing because of high water)
SLOWEST DUCK: FACT (via a drawing because of high water).
