Event description

Description

Gather up the kids and head to The Great Duck Derby on Saturday, March 10, for a day of family fun at Mead Botanical Garden.

The derby features little rubber duck races and tons of kid-friendly, fun activities. Best of all -- it's just $5 to adopt and "duckorate" a race duck. All other activities are FREE!

Gates to the Garden open at 9:45 a.m.; duck adoption and other activities start at 10 a.m. Activities include "duckoration station” where kids get their race ducks ready to race, silly song sing-alongs with Mr. Richard and Mr. Harley, animal encounters, games and crafts, nature hikes, bounce houses, face painting, the Winter Park Fire Department's big red engine and more! Pack a picnic or grab lunch from one of the food vendors.

The first race begins with the Big Beautiful Sponsor Duck race at 11 a.m., followed by a series of little duck races.

High school kids who need community service hours can volunteer by contacting Emily@meadgarden.org.

For more information, visit www.meadgarden.org. Proceeds benefit children's nature education programs at Mead Botanical Garden.
