22nd Annual Pawcatuck, RI, River Duck Race


The Pawcatuck, Rhode Island River Duck Race is happening on Saturday, April 30, 2022, and RSDSA is selling Duck Sponsorship Certificates for $5 each!

Approximately 20,000 rubber ducks will participate in the race. Each duck is the exact same size, color, and weight. Judges will preside over the event from various land and water locations. A specially created funnel will ensure that only one duck at a time crosses the finish line. If the duck that crosses the finish line has the same number that is on your Duck Certificate, you will be the winner of the race!

There are over 90 valuable prizes awarded with the grand prize being a trip for four to Disney World with airfare, hotel accommodations, and park passes or $2500 in cash! The grand prize winner is responsible for all taxes. Prizes must be picked up within 60 days of winning.
