This family-fun event quacks up the young and young at heart while supporting our community’s most vulnerable children. The fun starts at Noon, when you can enjoy FREE family-friendly entertainment, kids' activities, and food samples from Jordan Creek-area restaurants. At 2:00pm, thousands of yellow rubber ducks will race through the lake at Jordan Creek Town Center, all vying to cross the finish line first and be named Top Duck. Adopt your ducks and cheer them on to victory and the chance to win fantastic prizes, including $10,000 cash, courtesy of Des Moines Plastic Surgery.

All proceeds will benefit Youth Emergency Services & Shelter (YESS).
