East Side vs. West Side duck sales challenge | Community Spirit
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -Cincinnatians will compete in a friendly competition to see who can help sell more ducks for the 18th Annual Rubber Duck Regatta.
From noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 11, the Delhi and Hyde Park Krogers will host the first ever East Side vs. West Side Duck Sales Challenge. Whichever side sells the most ducks for the upcoming Rubber Duck Regatta will earn bragging rights in the long-standing, good-natured East Side vs. West Side Cincinnati rivalry.
The Rubber Duck Regatta, the Freestore Foodbank's largest fundraiser, will take place on Sunday, September 2 where as many as 150,000 ducks will drop into the Ohio River to race along the Serpentine Wall.
The owner of the first duck to cross the finish line will win a 2012 Honda Civic LX Sedan and a possible $1 million if their duck is the "Million Dollar Duck." The second place duck will receive $100 from Kroger every week for a year ($5,200 total), and five additional runners-up will win $500 case from KEMBA Credit Union.
Ducks are $5 each or six for $25 and can also be purchased online at www.rubberduckregatta.org or by calling (513) 929-DUCK (3825).
