Children's Miracle Network Duck Race Set for April 18

On Saturday, April 18, thousands of yellow rubber ducks will fill the Prien Lake Park waterway as the CMN Duck Race makes it way back to Lake Charles following a decade-long hiatus.  Mark your calendars now and plan to join in the fun!

The event will kick off at 10:00 a.m. with a chicken gumbo cook off and tons of activities for the kids.  The ducks will be released into the water at 1:00 p.m.  The first eight ducks to cross the finish line will "waddle" away with fabulous prizes including $5,000 cash, $2,009 cash, hotel accommodations in San Antonio, a set of Cooper Tires, a "Makeover Mania" party at Club Tabby and much, much more!

Duck adoptions are $5 each and can be purchased by calling Duck Central at 491-7750 or by visiting  All proceeds benefit the Children's Miracle Network.  Event sponsors include Cameron State Bank, Priola Construction, Southwest Louisiana Imaging, Bow Tie Marina, Graybar and CSE Credit Union.
