Coming to a Pond Near You: The First Lucky Ducky Derby

Come have fun in the sun and join us on Sunday, June 27 for the First Lucky Ducky Derby where we will release 10,000 adorable rubber ducks into the pond at Curtis Park. This is a new family-friendly event benefiting the American Red Cross-Dallas Area Chapter.

The festivities will begin at 3:00pm with the derby starting at 3:30pm. You'll be able to enjoy live music, great food, snow cones and even face painting for the kids.

However, these little ducks need to be adopted so they can raise money to help families affected by disaster in North Texas.

You can adopt a duck for just $5 or you can buy a "Quack Pack" with 6 ducks for $25. Adopt today For every duck you adopt, you'll increase your chance of winning 1 of 3 prizes: $2,000 for groceries from Kroger, ladies diamond Michele watch or two Southwest Airlines tickets.

While it seems like a small amount, you should know that it will have a big impact. A $25 donation will give six little ducks a home and allow the Red Cross to provide 2 hot meals to a disaster victim.

Please join us for this fun family day in the park and don't forget to visit to adopt your duck!
