Even ducks couldn’t take the water.

duckracelogoThe RiverBend Growth Association’s annual Duck Race has been moved this year from Grafton to Alton because of flooding on the Mississippi River. Duck Race 2019 will now be a “Party in the Park Duck Raffle” at the area of Gordon Moore Park’s Muenstermann Pavilion. The event will be on May 30 from 5 to 7 p.m. with the raffle being drawn around 6:30 p.m.

Admission is $5 per person. Additional ducks will be available for purchase. Approximately 100 prizes provided by local sponsors will be given away.

The Duck Race annually attracts hundreds of guests to Raging Rivers Water Park, which announced earlier this week it was delaying opening pending flood concerns.
