Raffle Tickets Available for Rubber Duck Dash and Dive

Thousands of little yellow rubber ducks will be racing down the Manchester Whitewater Park again next year.

Regional Medical Center is making plans to hold its annual Rubber Duck Dash and Dive in 2017 after debuting the event at last summer’s Riverfest.

Mike Briggs says the exact date and details of when they’ll drop thousands of those rubber ducks into the Maquoketa River is still up in the air. But, RMC does have your chance right now to purchase raffle tickets for the race. Now through December 30th, you can take advantage of a discounted price by buying one rubber duck for five dollars or five ducks for twenty dollars. Raffle tickets can be purchased through RMC’s website or at the hospital’s Welcome Desk.

If your duck finishes first in the race, you’ll win two kayaks, a couple tubes and several other prizes or you can choose a five hundred dollar cash prize. Prizes will also be awarded to the second through fifth place finishers.
