Big Bill$ Lil Rubber Duckie Race
In 2011 at the 1st Annual Rubber Duckie Race nearly 5000 duckies (weighing about a 1000 pounds) made the float down the Mississippi. The event was a big success in its first running. And the Brainerd Jaycees were able to donate about $7000 dollars to youth sports in the area.
The 2nd Annual Brainerd Jaycees Big Bill'$ Lil' Rubber Duckie Race is a duck race raffle to be held in downtown Brainerd on August 5th, 2012. The event will feature thousands of rubber duckies being dumped off the Laurel Street Bridge by a pay loader (provided by Zeigler Cat) and racing down the Mississippi River to Kiwanis Park. The First 30 duckies will win prizes for the person that adopted them. 100% of the event's proceeds will be donated to local youth sports in the Lakes Area with the primary beneficiary being Lakes Area Youth Soccer Association.
