Spring is Just Ducky

May 06, 2019

While there are many events that celebrate spring in Walla Walla, two of them stand out from the crowd: the Spring Fling and the annual Ducky Derby. Two of the area’s favorite events, both of these feature loads of family-friendly fun, with something for all interests and ages. First, join us at Pioneer Park on May 10-12 for the Walla Walla Spring Fling for a three-day party full of tasty tidbits and treats from local vendors, live music, and fabulous events, including a Kidz Zone, an Auto Show n’ Shine, and a tribute to veterans and active duty military.

Next, make your way over to Mill Creek on May 18 for the 22nd Annual Ducky Derby. This quack-tacular duck race features free popcorn and soda, 25-cent hot dogs, and children’s activities, along with the chance to win one of 19 wonderful prizes, including a Toyota Corolla, vacation getaways, bicycles, and a shot at $1,000,000! Sponsored by Community Bank and the Walla Walla Exchange Club Foundation, 100 percent of the net proceeds of the Derby go towards the Exchange Club’s mission to end child abuse.
