25th Annual Duck Derby Scheduled for May 7th at Children's Museum of Illinois


Decatur, IL— The annual Duck Derby is scheduled for the Children’s Museum of Central Illinois.  The museum has been holding this annual fun fundraiser for 25 years.  Quarter Jack, the duck will be making his appearance. 

Each year since 1991, supporters of the Museum have purchased raffle ducks for a chance to win $3,500, $1,000, or $500. This year's race will include inflatables, carnival games, and free admission to the Museum.

The museum added something new this year.   It will host a separate Kids' Duck Race for prizes with themed ducks that families get to take home.

The proceeds from the Duck Derby support Children's Museum of Illinois and its mission of complementing and enhancing children's educational opportunities, particularly in the arts and sciences. This includes summer camp programming, family programming throughout the year, exhibit maintenance and upgrades, and community outreach.

The 25th Annual Duck Derby is on May 7th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Supporters can buy ducks in person, from Children's Museum of Illinois website or by calling 214-423-5437
