Rockford Rotary celebrates rubber ducks; National Rubber Ducky Day was January 13

Rockford Rotary’s Big Daddy Duck Race was on the mind of Rotary members on National Rubber Ducky Day, January 13th.

The Duck Race is a community event like no other! Only in Rockford, Michigan can you find so many Big Daddy Duck Race supporters who go to such extreme lengths to beautify their rubber ducks, drawing a community together in a wonderful way.

Rockford Rotary will kickoff the Big Daddy Duck race this week. Look for three men and their ducks to brighten your door in the near future.

They are the originators of the prominent giant rubber duck and the Big Daddy Duck Race which takes place at Rockford’s Start of Summer Celebration. They need the community’s help with their ducky days!
