Nevada Humane Society's Rubber Duck Race August 25th

Posted: Updated:

The Nevada Humane Society's Duck Race and Festival is coming up next month. And now's the time to adopt a rubber duck or two -- or three!

Every August organizers release 15,000 bright yellow rubber ducks into the Truckee River.

The fastest ducks win prizes -- including vacation packages, even a chance to win $400,000.

Wingfield Park is also filled with several rubber duck-themed booths making the entire event very popular with families.

This year's Duck Race and Festival is set for Sunday, August 25th at Wingfield Park. The festival starts at 11am - and the event wraps up at 5pm.

Keep in mind -- the rubber ducks often sell out, so you're encouraged to adopt early. It costs $5 per duck.

For more information, call the Nevada Humane Society at 856-2000.
