About Wildquack Duck River Festival
This outdoor action packed day in the park brings singles, families, strangers, businesses and guests all together to forget about lifes trials and tribulations if only for a few short hours. Let's get together and laugh out loud as we watch more than 3,500 yellow rubber ducks make their way to the finish line. You'll find the kid in you again.
Crowds start to gather for the day at 7 AM when the ticket and memorabilia sales start. Pick out just the right spot near the ""Duck Stage"" where you'll hear our M/C's Rob & Andrew Clark (a celebrated Father and Son Team) entertain you with light hearted bantering, jokes and they'll announce the winners of this year's great prizes.
There are so many things happening through the entire day you will want to pick up an event day program found at any of our Sales/Information Tables identified by colorful Wildquack Duck flags.
