More than 18,000 plastic duckies are looking for sponsors to give them the opportunity to race to the finish as they swim down the St. Joseph River!
The 28th Annual Weigand Construction Duck Race to Benefit SCAN (Stop Child Abuse and Neglect) is Saturday, June 18th, at 8:00pm. Activities will begin at 7:00p, and include a bigger, better Kids’ Zone, live music from the Fort Wayne Funk Orchestra on the Sweetwater Sound stage, food trucks, and a beer garden hosted by the Fort Wayne Turners, with a fireworks show to close the evening. The top 25 ducks will receive prizes, with the top duck winning $5,000!

You can sponsor a duck for just $5, or you can increase your chance of winning by purchasing a “duck deal.” They are 1 for $5, 5 for $20, 13 for $50, 25 for $90, 50 for $160, or 100 for $300.
