What is a Duck Derby?

Rhythms at the River Walk is the signature fundraiser for the Cross Timbers Rotary Club. Join us on September 21, 2024, at the River Walk in Flower Mound, Texas. Our 7th annual event includes food trucks, music, vendor booths, and activities for children.

At 1:00 pm, come watch the Duck Drop with 30,000 or more yellow rubber ducks splashing into the river and racing toward the finish line. The first lucky duck wins a $2,500 gift card! Additional prizes are also awarded for the second through tenth-place ducks.

Anyone can adopt a duck for only $5. Increase your chances of winning by adopting several ducks at once! You can get a Bundle (5 for $25), a Flock (10 for $50), a Brood (20 for $100), a Flight (40 for $200), or a Dynasty (100 for $500).

Proceeds from the Duck Derby will benefit the Cross Timbers Rotary Club’s numerous nonprofit partner agencies. Join in on the fun and help make a positive change by adopting your ducks today!
