4th of July Duck Derby Extravaganza

June 27, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm



Join us for the Inaugural 4th of July Duck Derby Extravaganza on Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019. Fun starts at 5pm in Downtown Minden with race time at 7:00pm. You do not want to miss witnessing hundreds (and we mean hundreds!) of ducks “racing” down the streets of Downtown Minden.

As with any race, there has to be a winner. The fastest ducks to the finish line will win CASH PRIZES!
1st place – $2,000 cash
2nd place – $1,000 cash
3rd place – $500 cash

We want YOU to be the lucky duck! Tickets are now available! 1 duck is $10.00 or a flock of 5 ducks is $40.00. Contact any chamber board member for tickets, stop by our office at 110 Sibley Road here in Minden, or visit our website at www.greatermindenchamber.com to buy them online. Need NOT be present to win.

The Duck Derby Extravaganza will take place in conjunction with the 4th of July festivities (on Wednesday July 3rd) that Minden Main Street is hosting along with Title Sponsors Hathorn Fireworks and Gibsland Bank & Trust. Come downtown to enjoy a night of fireworks, kids activities, music, and of course a duck race! We hope to see you there.

Let’s get quackin’!
*No live ducks will be used for this event. We are using competitive, experienced racing plastic ducks!* 😉
