Thousands of little yellow rubber ducks will race down Fall River to raise funds for local charities and organizations during the 31st Annual Estes Park Rotary Duck Race Festival. This quirky event is to set to take place from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 4th, 2019, in Estes Park, Colorado.

You can “adopt” a duck for $22, pick the charity of your choice, and if your duck wins, you get a chance to win prizes like $5,000 cash and major vacations.
