Something New This Year
The Rotary Club of Aspen has created an alternative this year to the traditional duck race on the Roaring Fork River.  We are staging a “duck-out-of-water” race with 200 yellow balls rolling down Aspen Highlands Thunderbowl ski run instead of rubber ducks floating down the Roaring Fork River!
Just like the last 28 years, this will be a family-friendly event which includes live music, youth group games and activities, silent auction, and food/drink from the Highlands Alehouse. 
Aspen Rotary had to make the difficult decision that it would be unable to conduct its annual Ducky Derby festival and duck race in the river this August, due to the health and economic crisis caused by the coronavirus COVID-19. 
This will be the first time in its 29-year history that the traditional Ducky Derby will not take place. This new event is due to COVID restrictions against large crowds at the time Rotary had to make a decision about a traditional Ducky Derby race.
