Avenues Hosts 30th Annual Rubber Duck Race

Thousands of rubber ducks raced down Mill Creek, Saint Clair,  Sunday afternoon to raise money for Avenues.

On Sunday, The Avenues Foundation hosted its 30th Annual Duck Race Sunday at the Walmart Supercenter in St. Clair.

The event began at 12:00 pm  and those who attended enjoyed food, entertainment, and carnival games.

The Rubber Duck race took place at exactly 3:32pm where organizers dropped thousands of ducks into Mill Creek.  They raced approximately a quarter mile where organizers waited to collect the first ducks as they arrived near the entrance to Coal Creek Plaza.

All proceeds from the event benefit Avenues programs, which have been providing services to children and adults with developmental and/or acquired disabilities in Schuylkill and the surrounding counties since 1952.
