17th Annual Dixon Duck Dash (aka Rubber Ducky Festival)
October 12 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
The 17th annual festival will take place on Saturday, Oct. 12, at Bridgeport Park in Valencia. This FREE, family event kicks off with live music from the band, Island Passion, and thousands of rubber ducks racing throughout the day to compete for grand prizes of $2,000, $1,000, $500, and 2 Disney Park Hopper Tickets.
More than 30 vendors will be providing great information, games and giveaways to go along with a “Kid Zone” complete with a photo booth by Annnd Action, a rock-climbing wall, mechanical bull, face-painting, balloon artists, outdoor skee-ball and basketball hoop, carnival games and food trucks serving up a variety of dishes. Also returning this year is the “Duck-O-Ration” booth where kids can decorate their own rubber duck, enter it in the kids-only duck race and win prizes!
All rubber ducks entered in the races are available for adoption for as little as $5, which goes directly to supporting a visit with any of our professional healthcare staff. An adoption of seven ducks covers the entire visit for a person in need which can be a lifesaver! Online adoptions are now open at www.sdfhc.org and www.dixonduckdash.com or you can visit any of the three health center locations in Val Verde, Canyon Country and Newhall.
