RBS Duck Day Festival & Labor Day Celebration This Saturday

Get excited about the upcoming Annual Duck Day Festival!! 

This family fun event will be held this Saturday September 1 at Salt Lick Creek Park starting at 10 a.m. until the Duckies start their race at 2 p.m.

 

The RBS Lions Club Duck Day Festival will be held with the assistance of our community partner - the Red Boiling Springs Fire Department.

Many local crafters and vendors will have booths set up with all kinds of goodies and unique items for sale. Music, food, inflatables for the kids and games will also be part of the event.

The Racing Duckies will be at the starting line up at 2 p.m. You can adopt your Duckies from local businesses or from one of our members for a small $5 fee. 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.

Be sure to check out our Facebook page for all kinds of information on the Annual Duck Day Festival and many other events.

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.

Before the big Duck Day Festival, the First Annual Healthier TN Duck Day Color Walk Run will be held at 9 a.m. with registration to begin at 8 a.m. 

The Color Run will be held at Old Lake Park and there will be a small event fee.
