The Rotary Club of Kirkland is pleased to announce that the Great Puget Sound Duck Dash is scheduled for Sunday, August 10 at 2:30pm at the Kirkland Marina. Kirkland Rotary’s annual fund raiser will be part of this year’s Summerfest events.

The waters of the Kirkland Marina will be glowing gold the afternoon of Sunday August 10th as the ducks gather in preparation for the big race. Join the Kirkland Rotary Club at SummerFest to watch ten thousand yellow rubber ducks race through a specially designed boom course and vie for a top place finish.

Adopters of the top 5 winning ducks will each receive a $1,000 Grand Prize. 10 additional prizes with a total value of over $1,500 will be awarded.


Every dollar raised goes to support local Kirkland projects including

·         Scholarships

·         Miracle League Baseball for special needs students

·         First Harvest food bank

·         Operation Warm Coats and Shoes for students

·         Reading and Math Buddies

·         And more!
