They will float down the Chena River to the Cushman Street Bridge where the Official Duck Committee will wait to capture the first 40 ducks that cross the finish line.
The YELLOW ticket holder of 1st place duck wins $10,000 and the PINK ticket holder of the 1st place duck wins $5,000, If the same person purchased both tickets (a FULL DUCK), they get $15,000. Other major prizes are listed on the back of the tickets. There are a total of 83 prizes totaling over $20,000 in cash and over $35,000 in total prizes.
