The Lumsden Duck Derby
2016 Race Day is Monday, September 5th
The Lumsden Duck Derby is a fundraiser held each labour day weekend in which 25,000 rubber ducks will race down the Qu’Appelle River, with the first twenty (20) ducks rewarding their owners with a prize!
The Lumsden Duck Derby raises money for Lumsden Sports Association. For example last years duck derby along with a new provincial matching grant program managed to raise over $40,000 to help pay down the mortgage on the new ice plant and ice-resurfacer at Lumsden’s community owned and operated ice rink, helping to keep down the cost of hockey and figure skating for local families.
