The Incredible Duck Race Returns to Tampa April 8th, 2023



The 7th Annual Incredible Duck Race is coming back to Tampa Bay, Florida on April 8th, 2023 at Curtis Hixon Park. This one-of-a-kind race pits teams of rubber ducks against each other in a high-stakes showdown for a chance to win big prizes. The race has grown exponentially over the past few years and now it’s become an annual tradition for the local community. Here’s what you need to know about this year’s race.

The Kiwanis Club of Tampa will be racing 10,000 rubber ducks on the Hillsborough River. The rubber ducks will race down the river in front of Curtis Hixon Park and the first 3 ducks to cross the finish line will win cash prizes! The ducks can be adopted by the public for $5 per duck and all proceeds will benefit The Tampa Kiwanis Foundation which supports many local
children’s programs and charities. You don’t have to be present to win – so take a chance and adopt a duck! The event will feature family friendly games, food, and entertainment leading up to the big race.


  • 1st Place Duck – $5,000

  • 2nd Place Duck – $1,000

  • 3rd Place Duck – $500
