Thank you for swimming on over to the Rockin’ River Duck Drop page. By Adopting a Duck from Mainstreet Piqua you are supporting the organization that makes cool things like Taste of the Arts, the Piqua Community Farmers Market and Christmas on the Green happen for our community.

Mainstreet Piqua’s sixth annual Rockin’ River Duck Drop is set for Saturday, August 27 at Lock 9 Park in downtown Piqua and the rubber duckies are now available for adoption! At 6 p.m. the bright yellow ducks will be released into the Miami River east of Lock 9 Park and the finish line will be close to the Park.

You can purchase your ducks through our store.  When we receive your information we will immediately assign numbers to your ducks and they will be put in a vigorous duck training program to get ready for the big drop on August 27.
