What’s that duck-tastic buzz? Quack, quack! Get ready to splash into summer with the most anticipated event of the season—the Annual Duck Regatta! Imagine hundreds of rubber ducks racing down the spillway, all for a good cause! It’s the perfect family-friendly event that promises loads of fun and excitement.

In 2023, over 900 ducks were dumped over the Whitewater Spillway during the Duck Regatta.

Every duck adoption goes toward the nonprofit effort (beatification / park services), so you’re not just cheering for your favorite duck, you’re helping make a difference in the community. The top ducks dash to victory with amazing prizes waiting at the finish line. Will your lucky duck be the one?

Whether you’re cheering on from the sidelines or adopting your own racing duck, it’s an event that promises plenty of photo-ops and fun for all ages!

This event is sponsored by Union County Development Corporation. If you would like to purchase tickets, please use the UC Connect Contact Form and request information. Prizes include: 1st – $599, 2nd – $300, 3rd – $150, 4th – $100, 5th – $50. For additional information please call our office at 765.458.5976 or the Whitewater Memorial State Park office at 765.458.5565.
