Ready for your next muddy Monday? Toledo Jeep Fest is taking Jeep Ducking to the next level by teaming with Buff City Soap – Toledo to hatch a small army of ducks. And they’re coming to a Jeep near you.
The first hatch of 1,000 green ducks will be tagged with a 20% discount at area Buff City Soap locations (Secor Road in Toledo and Maumee). The tags will also remind Jeep fans of the upcoming Toledo Jeep Fest (#tjf2021) on Aug. 6-8 in downtown Toledo and to share your #duckduckjeep experience on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
“Twelve Toledo Jeep Fest ambassadors (including Glass City Crawlers jeep club members) will be traveling around the area and attending Jeep events in surrounding states and distributing ducks,” TJF event director Whitney Rofkar said.
Why ducks and Jeeps?
What is Ducking? The basic concept is that when you see a jeep that you love or you have jeep envy, you place a duck on their jeep. You Just Got Ducked! It’s a surprise for the owner, it brings a smile to their face.
The Jeep Ducking craze is now popular in the U.S., but was started in Ontario by Allison Parliament, a Canadian woman. Some 3,000 people responded to her first post, and there are now 10,000 members in the private Official Ducking Jeeps group on Facebook.
People have snapped photos of ducks on Jeeps in all 50 states, almost all Canadian provinces, and even Spain and Australia. Jeep dealerships and mechanics are leaving ducks on vehicles.
TJF organizers approached Buff City Soap owner Nick Kunkel to raise these unique ducks. The duck-shaped soap is free of harsh chemicals, detergents, and preservatives. You’ll find a combination of coconut, olive, palm and rapeseed oil with Buff City Soap’s most popular scent – Narcissist – that smells like peaches, raspberries, and patchouli sandalwood.
