Thousands are expected to flock to The Harbor for one of Rockwall’s favorite family festivals. This year, the event partners with the Day for Kids which celebrates the life-changing work taking place at Boys & Girls Clubs each day by encouraging adults to spend meaningful time with young people and engage in fun and active play.

This year, event organizers are going ALL OUT for a quacktastic good time. Mark your calendars because you won’t want to miss when the rubber meets the water at the 2018 Southwest Kia Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta! This year, there will be a completely new LakeZone featuring a remote control sailboat regatta, sailboat tours, Patrol Tours with the Game Warden, and a “Wet Duckie” Zone. The KidZone is new and improved with video game trucks, rock climbing, bungee jumping, petting zoo and more!

Take a walk through the market as you listen to local performers on the stage. Need to cool off? Head over to the Lazy Lagoon Lounge for a spell! Not to mention our new addition: the Shake Your Tail Feathers 5K & Fun Run!

Take the plunge as funds are raised to support the Rockwall branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Texas.
