We are excited about the upcoming Annual Duck Day Festival!! This family fun event will be held this Saturday September 2nd @ The Palace Park on the Salt Lick Creek starting at 10am until the Duckies start their race at 2pm.

The RBS Lions Club Duck Day Festival will be co-hosted by festival favorites Kim Evans and Dale Meador. Several talented performers such as Tennessee Line, Tylor Wix,  Kinship Trio, & a variety of others will be on hand throughout the day to entertain you and your family. Many local crafters and vendors will have booths setup with all kinds of goodies and unique items for sale. Christmas is right around the corner!

The First Place Duckie will win a $150 cash prize and the Lame Duckie (last one across the finish line) will win a $75 cash prize.

The money raised from this event will help us "serve" a variety of needs for local folks. We hope to see you there! 
Please feel free to bring a donation of canned goods, cleaning supplies, school supplies, toys or winter clothing for us to giveaway at our Warm Hands & Warm Hearts Cans & Coats giveaway.
After the Duck Day festivities, stick around for the Labor Day Celebration, sponsored by the RBS Fire Department & Rescue Squad.
The celebration will include fireworks on The Palace grounds, beginning at dark. Guests of the Labor Day Celebration are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs.
Just prior to the fireworks, a drawing will take place.
