“DUCK” into BELLAIRE…let the “QUACKIN” begin. The Bellaire Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present the 28th ANNUAL RUBBER DUCKY FESTIVAL in Downtown Bellaire on August 15, 2015 sponsored by The Farm Golf Course.
Highlighting the Rubber Ducky Festival on Saturday August 15, is a quarter-mile race when 2000 yellow ducks are dumped into the Intermediate River with the finish line at RIVERSIDE MARINA. Visitors can buy a $5 race ticket that corresponds to the number on a Rubber Duck. Ducks finishing the “Top 27” win a cash prize. Prizes: 1st– $500; 2nd -$300; 3rd – $100; 4th-7th place – $50; 8th-27th place – $10. Participants do not have to be present to win.
Also join us on Saturday for a Kids’ Duckling Park with Face Painting, Games, Large Inflatables, FREE Movie, and Bellaire’s Biggest Parade of the season (3:00). Buy treasures at the Fine Arts & Crafts Show, explore downtown Bellaire sidewalk sales and much more.
This year’s festival is part of Bellaire’s 12 Days of Summer Celebration August 6 – August 16.
