Victoria Duck Safari
October 29, 2022
> WHAT IS THE VICTORIA DUCK SAFARI?
Thousands of adopted rubber ducks will dive into the Lake at Ethel Lee Tracy Park and race toward the finish line. Prizes will be awarded for the first 10 ducks to reach the finish line. Anyone can adopt a duck for a chance to win. The ducks will paddle their way to an exciting finish. Can’t make it to the Duck Safari? Not a problem. If your lucky duck wins, we will notify you of your prize.
> WHY ADOPT A DUCK?
By adopting a duck, you have the opportunity to support the Victoria Symphony Orchestra and any of the other 26 participating Victoria County non-profit organizations. 2022 holds the promise of being a better year for all of us across the coastal bend and this is a chance for our non-profit community to pull together this season. Let’s make a splash with our Third Annual Victoria Duck Safari BUCK-A-DUCK non-profit program.
