This Side UP! Family Center was planning to host its annual Duck Race at Tom Muehlenbeck Recreation Center, but due to the coronavirus, this year's race will take place virtually live on Facebook ( on Saturday, August 1 at 2pm.

Before race day is here, join these other fun activities:

Duck Adoptions:
Virtual ducks are up for adoption on this site using the "Tickets" button above, starting June 1. You can adopt a single duck for $5, a Quack Pack of 5 ducks for $20, a Quacker Party of 30 ducks for $100, or send a duck on vacation for $20 (or more!) for a tax deduction. All racing ducks will be competing for bragging rights of course, but also for our five great prizes:
-First place: $500 Visa Card
-Second: $250 Family Membership (for 2020 or 2021) to The Texas Pool
-Third through sixth: $50 gift card to a local business to help make your own family fun

Flock of Ducks:
The ducks are racing from the pool to your yard. Send a surprise flock of ducks for a day of quarantine to the front yard of your friends, family, neighbor, or colleague.

Flocks will be delivered daily from June 15 - July 15. Open to the City of Plano or within 5 miles of Plano city limits. Order your flock or flock protection starting June 14 at this link:

If your yard gets flocked, come back to this Duck Race Event site to help the ducks move to their next nesting site. $10 will provide a flock removal and $30 will do a removal and migrate the flock to another yard of your choice.
