The Vermilion Port Authority Duck Dash 500 takes place in Vermilion, Ohio on Sunday, September 8, 2019. Each year the Vermilion Port Authority hosts the Annual "Duck Dash 500" on the Vermilion River. Thousands of rubber ducks race down the Vermilion River. The event takes place at McGarvey's Landing in downtown Vermilion.
Join the fun by sponsoring a duck for $5 each, or a "Quack Pack" of 5 for $20. Then show up at the Vermilion River and watch as your duck is dumped into the water and races towards the finish line. The first place winner is awarded $1000, second place is awarded $500 and third is awarded $250.
The race starts at 6:30 pm. Sponsor a duck at the Vermilion Chamber, Main Street Vermilion, or participating merchants in downtown Vermilion, or at the Vermilion Port Authority.
