Deming Duck Races

According to lore, the Deming Duck Races was begun by some guys in a local bar, in order to stimulate local commerce in a down economy.

Today, after having set boots on the ground, made many calls..and received many calls on/from Deming ..the over riding feeling that I came away with that the business community wishes it could move away from the Duck Races as a draw to their "fair" city.

Fat chance! According to Google this website and it's analytics ..the Duck races draw FAR more visitors than anything else about Deming New Mexico..combined! It would seem that Rockhound State Park (see below) ..would usurp The Ducks.

This info..and nowadays ..$5.00'll get you a fine cup of coffee!
