  • DATE:  Saturday, July 20, 2019

    TIME: 3:00 p.m.

    LOCATION: Ducks race from the Wendell Street Bridge to the Cushman Street Bridge

    HOW IT WORKS: There are 8,000 rubber ducks numbered to correspond with the tickets. Each duck has a YELLOW ticket and a PINK ticket that is associated with it. The ducks will be released from the Wendell Street Bridge on July 20, 2019 at 3:00 pm.  They will race down the Chena River to the Cushman Street Bridge where the Official Duck Committee will capture all of the ducks.  The first 40 ducks that cross the finish line are prize winning ducks, and 2 ducks will be plucked at random for the Wild Duck prizes. 

    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.

    How do I know if I win?

    The unofficial results will be posted at the Fairbanks Chamber’s Booth in the Golden Heart Plaza on race day. This list is deemed unofficial because it has not been vetted to check for unsold ducks. 

    The official list of winning numbers will be published on the Fairbanks Chamber’s website and social media accounts by July 23, 2019. The process used to determine the official winners is

    1. All unsold ducks are removed from the list

    2. The following winning ticket numbers are all bumped up to fill in where the unsold ticket numbers were previously listed

    3. The number of the ducks that finished in consecutive order after the first 40 ducks are used to populate the bottom of the prize grid.  This ensures all prizes are awarded, and the results are representative of the winners of only the sold tickets.

    The numbers of the winners do NOT have to be present to win. Winners DO have to present their winning ticket stub and valid identification to collect prizes. Prizes must be collected by October 31, 2019 from the Chamber office.

    TICKETS will be available around the beginning of May at the Fairbanks Chamber and more businesses all around town! Just look for big inflatable ducks!
