Event Highlight: Steamboat Rubber Ducky Race on August 25

Posted by Libby Lukens on Wednesday, August 21st, 2019 at 6:18am.

Growing up in Steamboat, one of my favorite events was the rubber ducky race. I would love to watch the ducks float down the river, and would often choose random duckies to cheer on as they made their way down the Yampa.

On August 25 this event will happen again to benefit Northwest Colorado Health. Head down to the Old Town Hot Springs in Steamboat to watch the duckies race down the slides. Ticket holders sponsoring winning ducks will win cash prizes and the opportunity to brag that you had the fastest duck around!

Northwest Colorado Health supports community wellness through programs and services helping people of all ages. They work to ensure that everyone is healthy and can afford health care in Colorado. Some of their programs include the Hospice and Palliative Program which the Rubber Ducky Race sponsors directly. Tickets are $10 dollars each.

Events like this one showcase the philanthropic spirit of Steamboat. Oftentimes the community rallies to support events such as this one with the overall goal to better our community.

Come on down to cheer on the duckies and support Northwest Colorado Health. All proceeds go to a good cause, and it’s a lot of fun!
