NEWS SPLASH! Rubber Duck Regatta returns to Rockwall Harbor


ROCKWALL, TX (Aug. 9, 2022) The most spec”quack”ular event of the season is back and bigger than ever! The 10th annual Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta will occur Saturday, September 17 at the Rockwall Harbor!

Benefitting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Texas and the Rockwall Grace Clinic, the event is a great time for two great causes in Rockwall County.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Texas has two locations in Rockwall where they seek to ensure that every kid who walks through their doors, especially those who need them most, reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Rockwall Grace Clinic is a faith-based nonprofit healthcare clinic addressing the medical needs of the uninsured and underserved adults and children in Rockwall County. In 2022, Grace Clinic opened their doors to serve youth as well as adults, making them an ideal partner for this fundraiser for kids!

The Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta is a fun and unique fundraising event. This one day, community festival boasts a KidZone with inflatables and activities, a Market with vendors from across the region, a Quack Shack where you can purchase all of the rubber ducky swag your heart desires, and the cornerstone of the event – the Rubber Duck Race. Thousands of rubber ducks will race down the fountains at The Harbor in Rockwall with the hope of crossing the finish line first.

New this year!

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the event, the 2022 Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta will also host a Jeep Festival where you can peruse the Jeep Zone, view the Jeep Exhibition, and attend the Jeep Parade to close out the event!

But that’s not the quackiest new addition this year – The Grand Prize of the 10th Anniversary Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta will be a brand new 2022 Jeep Wrangler – that’s right! Adopt a duck, win a Jeep!

How does it work?

Leading up to the event, people from all over the area “adopt” a rubber duck online. Before the race, a random number generator is used to assign each adopter a number. Each rubber ducky in the race has a corresponding number on the bottom. When the ducks cross the finish line into the tube, the first duck is pulled, the number is compared to the list of adopters, the winner is announced, and the winner wins a brand new 2022 Jeep Wrangler (please see for contest rules). The race will also give away a 2nd prize of a $1000 VISA gift card and a 3rd prize $500 VISA gift card.

1st Prize – Brand New Jeep Wrangler!

2nd Prize – $1,000 VISA Gift Card

3rd Prize – $500 VISA Gift Card
