We will be promoting our club, TrashFest and the Flea Market. Also this is for a good cause. I suggest that you 'sponsor a duck'. It is only $10. Application is at the bottom of this page. Otherwise, come out for the fun of it.


Location: The Downtown Aquarium - 410 Bagby Street,  Houston, Texas


Date: Sunday, September 30, 2007                             Time: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm



Purpose: To promote conservation awareness and support conservation programs.


The Downtown Aquarium and The Houston Hammerheads (a dive and snorkel club promoting ocean conservation) will be hosting the 1st Annual Rubber Duck Race on Sunday, September 30th. Funds raised through this event will be used to support conservation programs and promote conservation awareness through education.


The Duck race, which begins at 10:00 a.m., is a unique family-friendly fundraiser, which allows people to adopt a numbered plastic duck to compete with other in a race down Buffalo Bayou, powered by the wind and current, toward the finish line. The “parents” of the first one hundred ducks will compete for primary prizes and other parents will be put into a drawing for the remaining prizes. The cost to adopt a duck is $10.00 and Corporate Ducks are $100.00. Conservation Organizations will be exhibiting and distributing materials throughout the event. Entries received prior to the race day, will receive a “buy one get one free all-day adventure pass” coupon. Each pass includes unlimited access to Shark Voyage, Aquarium Adventure Exhibit, Ferris Wheel, Carousel, and Lighthouse Dive at The Downtown Aquarium. In addition, each entry will receive a “free appetizer of the day with the purchase of an adult entrée” coupon for the Aquarium Restaurant.

 Come join Sharkey, Nero and all of the Downtown Aquarium staff in celebrating the

1st Annual Rubber Duck Race in Buffalo Bayou!

When a baby whale was beached on August 16th on West Beach… TMMSN (Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network) jumped into action… It cost $400 a day for formula alone… This is just one of the costs it takes to save stranded marine mammals and funding comes from your donations!
