    Humane Society of Truckee – Tahoe

    This fun-filled afternoon features one of the silliest races around, the rubber ducky float down the Truckee River. Bring the whole family out to sponsor a duck in this unpredictably splashy race. Dress up your dog and participate in the wildest and wackiest dog costume contest around, the Dogz in Dudz contest, all to help homeless pets in our community.

    You may purchase your “winning” duck starting at 1:00 pm. The Dogz in Dudz contest will start at 2:00 pm with the duck race starting immediately after. You’ll also want to stick around for one of the best raffles in town, so plan on enjoying the festivities until 5:00 pm.

    The prize money awarded depends on the amount of ducks sold, with the average 1st place duck earning up to $150.00 in winnings, 2nd place at $100.00 and 3rd place at $50.00. Cost to sponsor a duck is $10.

    Live music, the super-silly Duckee Derbee race, a fantastic raffle, cold beers and dogs galore round out this fabulous, family afternoon.

    Sunday, June 7 from 1 p.m. –¬†5 p.m.
    Location: The River Ranch – Corner Highway 89 and Alpine Meadows Road
