Annual North County Duck Races Scheduled for July 29 at Koch Park

2017-Duck-Race   The City of Florissant will once again sponsor the Mayor’s Race at the Famous Annual Greater North County Duck Races, which are scheduled to begin promptly at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 29 at the Florissant Koch Park Aquatic Center’s Lazy River.

For $5 a piece racers may enter a duck in the competition and receive a duck key chain and free admission to the water park on the day of the event.

Florissant Mayor Thomas Schneider also issued a challenge to the mayors of Bellefontaine Neighbors, Black Jack, Dellwood, Ferguson, and Hazelwood to have the courage to face him as he defends the highly coveted “Mayor’s Race Duck Trophy,” which he won in 2016.

“I was fortunate last year to win not only the Greater North County duck trophy but also the Greater North County Chamber of Commerce golf trophy, and proudly displayed both in the Florissant Mayor’s office,” said Mayor Schneider.

Mayor Tom Schneider will defend his title in the 2017 Mayor’s Duck Race trophy competition.

“Having already lost the golf trophy to a lucky team from Ferguson in June, I will do everything I can to keep the duck trophy in Florissant!,” declared a determined Mayor Schneider.

“Mayor Schneider will enter this race with both hands tied behind his back,” said Bellefontaine Neighbors Mayor Robert Doerr, “and must drop Ducky from his mouth.”

Added James Knowles, Mayor of Ferguson, “I plan to win so that I can put my Duck Race trophy next to my Mayor’s Cup golf trophy that I won again this year.”

Sponsorship opportunities for the duck tournament are available. Entrants may call the Greater North County Chamber of Commerce office at 314-831-3500 to register their duck entries.
