Great Ball Race Tickets




The 2022 Great Ball Race will be held on September 24, 2022.

Here’s how the Great Ball Race works:

  • Purchase a numbered raffle ticket  Each ticket is $10.00.
  • Brightly colored plastic balls will be numbered to correspond with the numbers on the raffle tickets.
  • These balls will then be released and “rolled” down Brink Street with the fastest ball winning $1,000 for its owner.  Runner up prizes too!

The Great Ball Race is a fundraiser for Downtown Crystal Lake/Main Street, a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization.  Proceeds will be used to help enhance and promote our historic downtown district.
