IDAHO FALLS – It was a fun-filled day for those who attended the 30th annual Great Snake River Greenbelt Duck Race in Idaho Falls Saturday.

Organizers tell EastIdahoNews.com about $83,000 was raised at this year’s event, which will go directly to improvements for the Greenbelt River Walk. Over the past 30 years, more than $5.5 million has been raised from the duck race with matching funds from the City of Idaho Falls.

The event kicked off Friday night with a Classic Car Cruise. Classic cars, motorcyclists, and drag racing enthusiasts began the downtown cruise at Heritage Park and ended at Idaho Falls Cars and Trucks at 880 West Broadway.

A variety of events were held along the Greenbelt Saturday, including speedboat racing, a muscle man semi pull, Home Depot build-it workshop, Cabela’s kid-friendly archery, a military flyover, helicopter and Idaho Falls Fire Department ladder truck display, car show, food vendors and more.

Participants in the duck race could adopt a rubber duck for a small amount of money. The ducks were dropped into the Snake River before it got underway.
