The Annual Vail Rotary Duck Race is also held in Vail Village on Sunday, September 6th. Rotary members sell “duck adoption papers” prior to the race. Adopt your duck online for a chance to win a million dollars! The yellow rubber ducks will race down Gore Creek to the finish line under International Bridge. Prizes are awarded for those holding the “adoption papers” for the winning ducks. The event funds local scholarships for young adults in the Vail Valley. You may also buy your ducks at the Vail Farmers Market and Art show.
