ABOUT THE EVENT

QUACK-QUACK! The 2022 PBA Pluck-A-Duck Extravaganza is a fun 2-day event held August 21 from 10:00am – 3:00pm and Monday, August 22 at NOON.

 

The Extravaganza joins forces with the Town of Putnam’s Main Street Car Cruise on August 21, where attendees will enjoy viewing hundreds of classic cars, live music & more, including the Kids Corner, Photo Booth, and Feeling Ducky Create-A-Card activity. All cards will be distributed to local Senior Centers and Veterans organizations, and guaranteed to create a smile! 

The 'Pluck-a-Duck' event, held the following day, will see over 5,000 rubber ducks will be released at a secret duck pond location in Putnam, CT to be ‘plucked’ for a chance to win 65+ fantastic prizes! And after all prizes have been plucked, the final three waddlers out of the pond will be selected for our “Lame Duck” prizes, sponsored by Tom & Kathy Borner and United Services.

The PBA Pluck-A-Duck Extravaganza is the major fundraising event for the PBA. Funds raised will support future events such as Zombie Fashion Show, The Great Pumpkin Festival, and Fire & Ice.

Again this year, more than 19 non-profit organizations will also benefit from selling duck certificates as an opportunity to raise extra funds for their worthy cause and those they serve in our community.
