29th Annual Duck Race

Date: August 26, 2017 Time: 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM

 The 29th annual Duck Race benefits The Center for Prevention of Abuse. Activities begin at noon. This year’s race features a 750-foot slip-n-slide, which will run down the street leading to Eastside Centre. The ducks will be released at 2 pm from a City of East Peoria dump truck onto the slip-n-slide. Firefighters will help the ducks down the hill by spraying the track with water. The person whose duck makes it to the finish line first will be the winner of $5,000. There are also many other great prizes to be awarded.

Event Location Eastside Centre, 1 Eastside Drive, East Peoria
