All about the Ducks

About the Duck Project

The Downtown Improvement District is responsible for organizing this Summer's Discover the Ducks Downtown project. The ducks landed on the first day of Summer and will return home on September 22nd. The DID commissioned Sprocket Mural Works to organize local artists to design and paint each of the ducks. A big thank you to Ron Kamionka and Kamionka Entertainment Group for their help and support with this project!

Auction of the Ducks

The summer of ducks is coming to an end. It's time to say goodbye to all of our ducky friends and that means it's time for an auction. We already auctioned several of the ducks last week, but we still have Yellow Duckarine. The auction will be hosted through our Discover the Ducks Downtown facebook page.  A starting bid will be displayed with the photo.  The auction for Yellow Duckarine will take place Tuesday, September 26 until Thursday, September 28 at noon. Ducks must be paid for with cash or check, sorry no credit cards.

Bidders will comment with their bid along with their email address. Bidders should "turn on notifications" on any duck photo that they have bid on. This will allow the bidder to be notified if someone else has placed a bid. When the auction closes, the photos will be taken down and the winning bidder will be notified via email. The winner must respond within 24 hours to acknowledge they have won and will accept the duck. If the winner declines, we will notify the next top bidder. 

 Arrangements for pick up will be made after the auction has ended. Sorry, no deliveries.
