The Vermilion Port Authority Duck Dash 500 took place on Sunday, September 16, when thousands of ducks raced down the Vermilion River.
Each year the Vermilion Port Authority hosts the Annual "Duck Dash 500" on the Vermilion River. Participants joined the fun by sponsoring a duck for $5 each or a "Quack Pack" of 5 for $20. Then they showed up at the Vermilion River bridge and McGarvey's Landing and watched as their ducks were dumped into the river and raced towards the finish line.
The first place winner was awarded $1000, second place was awarded $500 and third was awarded $250. Door prizes were also awarded by local merchants.
