Broad Ripple’s summer family event is the Broad Ripple Duck Race. Fifteen hundred rubber ducks enter the water where the Monon trail crosses the Canal and race to the finish line at the Rainbow Bridge. There are plenty of prime viewing spots along the race route and prizes for first place.
The event is scheduled for Sunday, June 26th from 3-5 p.m. with the race starting promptly at 4:30. Come early to enjoy the rest of the festivities, “Kids Take Over Broad Ripple.” Purchase your duck the day of the race or in advance on line or at the BRVA booth at the Market this Saturday.
After the race, pick up your duck at the finish line and keep it for a souvenir. The first three winners get gift cards from local Broad Ripple merchants. First place is valued at over $300! For more information and to purchase a racing duck online, click here.
