Virtual duck pluck

The annual Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta has been changed this year to a Virtual Duck Pluck and is scheduled to be held Oct. 30.

The annual Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta remains afloat even during a pandemic, although this year’s event will be conducted virtually, and again benefits the Rockwall Boys and Girls Club.

The #QuackyQuarantine event is scheduled for Oct. 30, but rubber ducks are already eligible for adoption. In previous years, the ducks were entered in a race through the fountain at Rockwall Harbor.

This year’s Virtual Duck Pluck will feature a live stream of the Rubber Duck Mascot plucking out the winners of the event. Each adopted duck receives a number, with the grand prize a family trip for four to Walt Disney World, including airfare, seven days in an Orlando condo and a $1,000 Disney ticket voucher. The prize is sponsored by Destefano Remodeling and Hanby Insurance.

Second prize is a $500 Visa gift card, sponsored by Lindsay Mitchell, Realtor and third prize is a $250 gift card, sponsored by Smith and Lee, Lawyers.

Ducks are adoptable for $5 each, with a Quack Pack of five ducks for $25 or a Derby Dozen of 14 ducks available for $50.

The Rockwall Virtual Duck Pluck is being presented by the Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta and is sponsored by Southwest Kia Rockwall and the City of Rockwall.
