VICTORIA, Texas – On Saturday, Nov. 6, the Victoria Symphony Orchestra will hold their Second Annual Victoria Duck Safari. Thousands of adopted rubber ducks will dive into the Lake at Ethel Lee Tracy Park and race towards the finish line.

Victoria Symphony Orchestra invites the public to adopt a duck. By adopting a duck, you have the opportunity to support the organization and any of the other 27 participating Victoria County non-profit organizations. This is also a chance for Victoria’s non-profit community to come together this season.

Prizes will be awarded for the first 12 ducks that reach the finish line. Anyone is eligible to adopt a duck and have a chance to win. The adopted ducks will paddle their way to an exciting finish.

If you aren’t able to make it to the Duck Safari on Saturday, you will still be notified of your prize.

Live music by Jerry James, provided by Victoria Fine Arts Association, will be available for guests. Food trucks will also be on site. You are invited to bring your family and refreshments of your choice. Glass bottles are not allowed.
