Quacky has adoption papers ready for the upcoming Ducks on the Dan duck race. / April 21, 2010
Don’t pull out the shotgun…..this is ‘Rubber Duck’ Season.

The third annual Ducks on the Dan Derby Duck Race is coming up on June 12.

The Dan River in Downtown South Boston will be awash with 5,000 yellow rubber ducks. The numbered ducks will be launched into the river and will waddle toward the finish line while their adoptive parents cheer them on, hoping their duck will win a prize.

There will be a family fun day with music, food, kids games, and activities in Constitution Square from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. The Duck Drop is at 3 p.m. You do not have to be present to win. Come have fun and dance to Disco Duck with Quacky, our mascot!

To adopt a duck online, see a list of prizes, sign your charity up to be a sales team and raise money for their cause, or for more information, visit or call the Quackline at 1-877-80-QUACK(78225) or 434-575-6246.
