The Great Duck Race takes place each year just below the dam on the beautiful Cass River after the Bavarian Kinder Tag Parade. Hundreds of yellow rubber ducks are placed into the Cass River to flock toward the finish line.  This is a favorite event for local residents and visitors who descend on the downtown area during the Bavarian Festival weekend.
