Ducky Derby Floating Rubber Duck Race

We “flood” Ivy Creek in Peaks View Park with 2,500 rubber ducks, each adopted by community members hoping their duck is the lucky one to cross the finish line first! With the help of the moving stream waters, some “Duck Wranglers” and nets, the race is an event you won’t want to miss. Admission is free. Bring the kids out for games, activities, concessions and family fun—not to mention the chance to win great prizes!

On the day of the race, cheer on your lucky ducks as they race toward the finish line. You do not have to be present to win, but you’ll definitely want to be!!!

Grand Prize ( 1st ducky to cross the finish line) = $1,000
Second Place ( 2nd ducky to cross the finish line) = $500
Third Place ( 3rd ducky to cross the finish line) = $250
Lame Duck ( Last Ducky to cross finish line) = $100

Adopt-a-Duck for $5, or increase the fun and your chances of winning by adopting a Quack Pack - six ducks for only $25! Online convenience fees apply.

Dorante is charming, handsome, and a pathological liar! When he arrives in Paris, Dorante\'s outlandish tales amaze and convince all who hear them, but for each problem his clever lying solves, it creates two new ones. Will he manage to keep his stories straight, his dupes none the wiser, and somehow still get the girl? This joyful comedy bursts onto the stage in playwright David Ives\' sparkling new adaptation.

Ticket prices are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors (60+), and $5 for students, except for Insights from the Inside, which will be $5 for all seating.
