Now in its 25th year, The Summit Foundation's Great Rubber Duck Race will draw thousands to Breckenridge's Blue River on Saturday. Every contribution to place a rubber duck in the Blue River vies for serious prizes, while benefiting foundation, our community foundation that raises funds to grant to nonprofit organizations and students through post-secondary education scholarships. The Lowe's Kids Duck Dash will begin at 1 p.m. where up to 750 ducks will be dropped by Red, White and Blue firefighters from the bridge on Adams Street into the river for a quick swim. Entry into the Kids Duck Dash is $10 per duck and the top 25 finishers will be awarded prizes from Peak-A-Boo Toys, as well as child's season passes from Vail Resorts Echo, Loveland Ski Area, Arapahoe Basin and Copper Mountain. Kids get to take home their skier and skateboard ducks.In conjunction with their sponsorship of the kids duck dash, staff from Lowe's of Silverthorne will host free Build & Grow Kid's Clinics from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Blue River Plaza. The first 200 kids, grades two through five, will be shown how to build their very own projects to take home. Families can also enter for a chance to win a kids' playhouse. A $25 contribution places your kid's name in a drawing to win a hand-crafted playhouse valued at $5,000. The FirstBank Business Battle Duck Race follows at 2. Given this race will likely cap off at 200 entries, the odds are better to win a private backcountry powder skiing/snowboarding adventure for 12 people with Chicago Ridge Snowcat Tours at Ski Cooper courtesy of Business Battle Duck Race sponsor FirstBank. The adventure includes a gourmet lunch in a heated yurt. Breckenridge Distillery is also donating a key prize - a private bottling party for up to 13 people and Copper Mountain is coming in with one-hit wonders at Woodward at Copper. Business battle ducks are entered with a $100 contribution.Visit FirstBank this week and the Riverwalk on Saturday to see the dressed-up ducks created by participating businesses. The best decorated duck (according to the foundation's esteemed duck council of expert judges) will be awarded a canvas painting party for eight at Ready Paint Fire.At 3, up to 10,000 yellow rubber ducks take the plunge in Maggie Pond and start their journey down the river toward the Riverwalk. Title sponsor Grand Lodge on Peak 7 will award the fastest duck a week stay in a two-bedroom suite at any Interval International resort and additional prizes like lift tickets, Unity snowboards, gift certificates, clothing, rec center passes and local performance tickets will be awarded to the next 50 ducks that cross the finish line, as well as the last duck to arrive - pizza and a pitcher of beer courtesy of Downstairs at Erics. A contribution of $5 enters a duck in the great rubber duck race, but more bang for your buck can be found by purchasing a golden flock (25 ducks) for $100; a baker's dozen (13 ducks) for $50 or a six-quack (six ducks) for $25.A barbecue, kids amusements, duck race sales and souvenir tables, and family-friendly entertainment will be available throughout the Riverwalk and Blue River Plaza area on Saturday.Over 200 volunteers and business partners, in conjunction with the foundation staff and board members, make this event a success.
