2020 Most Popular Duck Chosen
We have a winner! The PJF duck was voted the Most Popular Duck in Rockford! Their duck received 1130 votes which is a ton! Second place went to Choice One bank with 560 votes. Third place was the North Kent Connect duck which barely edged out Rogue Valley Vet duck and Gorillatechs duck. The PJF duck (shown below) will receive a traveling trophy that they can display at their place of business for a year. Thank you everyone who participated! Please come see the ducks race rain or shine on August 8th at 4 p.m. in downtown Rockford at the dam. The ducks will start at the dam and race to Sowersby Park. The race usually takes about 16 minutes, but recent rains could shorten that time. Come out and see all the ducks. Thanks again!

2020 Fastest Duck Crowned
The fastest duck in Rockford for 2020 is the Car Care Center Cedar Springs duck. Maybe we all should have seen it coming because the duck has wheels on it. Somehow those wheels and some extra weight from batteries, allowed it to ride the current to a come from behind victory on Saturday August 8th. The finish of the race was really exciting. Thank you to everyone who came out to the park to see it happen. It was a lot of fun! The last place duck was Sable Homes. Their naked duck edged out Heather Cardorette’s Tiger King duck for last.
2020 Prettiest Duck is Integrity Tax Service
When the ducks are displayed downtown on race day, the people of Rockford view them and vote on them with donations. The duck that ends up with the most money in its jar is crowned the Prettiest Duck in Rockford for that year. This year it was Integrity Tax Service’s duck and it wasn’t close. That duck collected over $44 in donations. Thank you everyone who came and viewed the ducks and participated. We look forward to an even bigger event next year!
