For every $10 ticket and every $20 ticket the contestant will be entered into the race, receiving an emailed ticket stub. IF a contestant spends $100 at one time, they receive a muck in the mail! The muck is a mythical animal, part moose and part duck. The muck is a great souvenir for locals and tourists alike. The race ducks are separate from the souvenirs and are not given to the contestants, the race ducks have corresponding numbers to match the ticket number purchased. The three ducks that that cross the finish line first are the prize-winning ducks.
