8/28, 33rd Annual Duck Race

Thank you to everyone who came to this year’s Duck Race! It was a hot day but we had a blast celebrating our signature fundraiser in it’s 33rd year, with food trucks, live music, and fun for the whole family!
We are thankful for every duck sold and everyone who made this year’s event possible, including our good friends at EastSide Centre, the East Peoria Chamber of Commerce, the East Peoria Fire Department, and the East Peoria – City Government.
