2015 YESS Duck Derby

May 2, 2015 - 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm at Jordan Creek Town Center
101 Jordan Creek Pkwy

You won’t want to miss the quack-tacular 8th Annual YESS Duck Derby! The fun starts at Noon, when you and your friends and family can enjoy FREE 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. You can adopt a duck (or a whole flock!) and cheer it on to victory and the chance to win fantastic prizes, including $10,000 cash!

Adopt your ducks here!
