Duck Race

Get ready for some quack-tastic fun at The Annual Great American Duck Race during the Fourth of July Festival in McPhelemy park! Watch all of the  rubber ducks take the plunge, racing down Cottonwood Creek into the Town Lake at McPhelemy Park. And guess what? There are not one, but two epic grand prizes up for grabs—a super cool e-bike and an incredible 2-day overnight rafting trip! There are plenty of other awesome prizes to be won too.  Join in on the excitement, laughter, and thrills at this unforgettable event in the heart of Buena Vista.

Let the races begin!
