What is the GPX Ducky Grand Prix?
The Ducky Grand Prix is Charity Duck Race with lots of rubber ducks racing in the water to the finish line! The Duckies will compete in qualifying heats based on the number of entries. There will be a live feed of the duckies racing in the water, so you can experience the fun first hand during your COVID quarantine! Our Announcer will be giving us a play by play along with the Pit Crew Helpers. Your Ducky will have multiple ways to win, while giving smiles to kids! RACE one Ducky or many! We have duckies for everyone — from rockstars to Paint-to-Sample!
