The Kentucky Derby is billed as the “most exciting two minutes in sports,” but Harbor House of Louisville 's Ken-Ducky Derby is an experience unlike any other. Harbor House of Louisville’s signature 8th Annual Ken-Ducky Derby will take place on Saturday, September 24th, 2011. The event will be held at Festival Plaza which is near Joe's Crab Shack at Waterfront Park in Downtown Louisville; starting at noon and will end at 5:00 p.m.
Beginning in August, citizens of Metro-Louisville begin adopting rubber ducks from various locations throughout the city of Louisville. The winning duck in the duck race wins a new car. The ducks are $5.00 each, a “Quack Pack” family of six ducks for $25.00, a “Big Quack Pack” of 14 ducks for $50.00 and / or a “Flock of Ducks” of 30 ducks for $100.00. Rubber ducks are adopted by completing an “adoption form."
Each duck has an equal opportunity to win the grand prize, a 2011 Honda Fit, courtesy of Sam Swope Honda World, as well as many other prizes. You do not have to be present to win, but if you are there are other chances you will win additional prizes.
