BRVA DUCK RACE 2016
posted: Jul. 08, 2016

The annual Duck Race was held on the canal Sunday, June 26th, 2016. More than 1500 rubber ducks were poured off of the red Monon bridge into the Central Canal. The ducks floated west under the Rainbow Bridge at Guilford Avenue and on to the finish line at Flatwater Restaurant's patio. Fire fighters set up a net across the canal to catch (most of) the ducks.
Before the race, activities were set up on Rainbow Bridge which included face painting, a kiddie fishing pond, and the Colts Museum. At around 4:30pm the ducks were released. The first three ducks to the finish were thrown to shore and the winners were announced (below).
1st Place: Alex Ehrgott - Average Joe's $100, Indy CD $50, Artifacts $50, brics $40, Target $50, Sno Zone $21, Runners Forum $25, 317 Burger $50, Dr. Eve Earley $100.

The crowds lined the canal to watch the 1500+ ducks vie for position as they approach the finish line. Some of the ducks had further plans for escape.

A number of rogue ducks escaped from the net and headed south to where? If you read the Gazette you know where! The White River Treatment Plant, where the skimmer would route them off into Fall Creek. Remember from issue #7?
