DUCK DAY IN MAY! begins this year at 8:00am, with a timed and chipped 5k and a 1-mile fun-run. The Family Festival begins at 10:00am, and includes lots of FREE games and entertainment for young and old. Then at Noon, our trained and dedicated rubber duckies hit the Lazy River at Parrot Island to race for big prize packages. After the race, Parrot Island will open at 1:00pm for an afternoon of fun in the water at discounted rates.

Although the Family Festival and the Duck Derby are free, there is a small registration fee of $25 for the Quack Waddle and Run 5k race – an event goodie-bag and T-shirt are included.  The 1-mile Fun Run is free to children 12 and under, and $10 for all others. You can register for the race online at: https://runsignup.com/Race/AR/FortSmith/DuckDerby5k1mileFunRun  

The after-swim at Parrot Island is $10 for guests over 48”, and $5 for guests under 48”.  There is a special rate of $5 for foster families (all sizes), when they check in with proof of foster family status.  And don’t forget to get your duck in the race!  For a $5 racing-duck adoption fee, you will have the opportunity to win fantastic prize packages!  You also receive a token duck of your choice to keep!  For more information please call STEPS Family Resource Center at 479-782-7837, or visit the STEPS website at:http://thestepsinc.org.
