Duck Dash 500


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. This year's location is yet to be determined, due to high water levels at McGarvey's Landing.

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 in downtown Vermilion, or at the Vermilion Port Authority.

Join in the fun and festivities sponsored by the Vermilion Port Authority.
