Labor Day Weekend marks the official end of summer. It’s also the time for a longstanding Summit County tradition: The Great Rubber Duck Race!
For three decades, this fun-filled community event has raised money in support of the Summit Foundation’s grant and scholarship programs. The Summit Foundation is the leading organization inspiring people and mobilizing resources to improve and enrich the lives of individuals in Summit County.
On August 31, thousands of adopted ducks zip down the Blue River in the heart of Breckenridge for this worthy cause. Participate in the 32nd Annual Great Rubber Duck Race by adopting one—or even a flock—of ducks, available for sale around town prior to the race. It’s a great cause—and it’s fun! Should your duck cross the finish line a winner there are prizes!
Free family activities, bounce houses, a community mural and toddler zone are all part of the fun. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
