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.
The Great Duck Race is one of the Frankenmuth Morning Rotary Club's largest fundraisers.  All proceeds from the Great Duck Race are used for the Morning Rotary's local and international community projects, scholarships, and donations. Some of these projects include:
Equipment for the Frankenmuth High School science lab, Dictionary/Thesaurus school donation, Annual adoption of families for Christmas, Two $2,000 Scholarships, two $2,000 trade scholarships, Oratorical contest for grades 3-5, Annual school supply drive, Unsung Hero Award, High School Volunteer of the Year, International Water and Sanitation Projects, Ongoing polio eradication efforts.
