There is no charge to attend, however each car must pay the USNWC parking fee of $6. All adopted ducks will be assigned a number and winners will be announced after the first ducks cross the finish line. With a growing demand for KinderMourn services, the need is high; the goal is to have 35,000 adopted ducks in 2022.
