The Terrace Rotary Wild Duck Race

A helicopter will drop rubber ducks into the west channel of the Skeena River between the old and new bridges—and the race is on! The ducks will race downstream to a finish line even with the Walmart building, where a flotilla of boats wait to pluck the winners from the water. Spectators watch the race on the portion of the new bridge on Highway 16 closest to Walmart. If you’ve bought your $20 Duck Race ticket, you could win $25,000 cash, a ½ hour helicopter ride, $500 gift card from Safeway or a $500 gift card from Canadian Tire. 

Proceeds from tickets sales are contributed to worthy community projects. Look for Rotary Club members selling tickets along the parade route and at George Little Park on Saturday, July 31. Note: Traffic on H16 bridge will be reduced to single lane, alternating traffic.
