San Antonio has a ducky event coming in October.
The annual event called the "Lucky Duck Race" will be held this year on Oct 5th Sat. from 3pm to 6pm on the River Walk near the Pearl Brewery. There is a free concert by Broken Duck Feet and the ducks will launch at 5pm. You can buy a duck for $5 and over 20,000 ducks will be racing down the river.
This event benefits the community by helping the Job Training program for Haven for Hope (the homeless campus in downtown San Antonio).
Haven for Hope is the resource that provides shelter, food, job training and medical needs for the homeless in our area. They need funding and volunteers to continue their programs. Even if you can not attend, you can still participate by adopting a duck online.
The corporate sponsor is "Ford" and they will be giving away the grand prize of a Ford Fiesta car. Other sponsors include IBC Bank and Pearl Brewery. The event is produced by Paseo del Rio Association.
Other prizes include; a $1k gift card from HEB, a 7-day cruise for two and a Samsung Galaxy Tab II.
So get your lucky ducky ready to win.
