Adoptions Now Open For Naperville’s Riverwalk Duck Race

You can now adopt a duck for Naperville’s Annual Riverwalk Duck Race (a rubber duck, that is)! This race will have thousands of rubber ducks “racing” on the DuPage River on August 14, all to benefit the Naperville Riverwalk Foundation.

Single ducks or “flocks” are available for adoption online HERE.

One duck: $5

Five ducks: $20

25 ducks: $100

50 ducks: $175

100 ducks: $325

250 ducks: $750

You can even sponsor a jumbo duck for $100! The jumbo ducks can be decorated and have a clear advantage in the race, but are not able to take home the cash prizes.

  • Grand prize: $1981
  • 2nd place: $500
  • 3rd place: $250

The Riverwalk Foundation is also using the annual duck race to raise awareness about wildlife in Naperville. Residents and visitors are reminded not to feed wild ducks and geese as it can be harmful to the ecosystem and its wildlife.
