Enjoy the last weekend of Spring with a Turtle and a Duck Race. We have two fundraising races this Saturday, June 18, 2016 for two fantastic organizations. Our first race is a new Mini Turbo Turtle Race followed by a quacky Derby Duck Race. Check them out!
Tour de Turtle IF Race
The first race of the day is also a Mini Turbo Turtle Race. The first annual Tour de Turtle IF Race will make its grand debut in Iowa Falls, IA on Saturday. Beginning at 11am CDT turtle race fans can enjoy an afternoon of family friendly activities, food, and refreshments at the Boat House. A total of $1,500 is up for grabs as the grand prize. All proceeds will benefit the Grand Jivante Foundation whose mission is to have seniors embrace life, not retire from it. Adopt a Turtle today before all 2,000 sell out!

The second race of the day is also in Iowa. The 8th annual Great Eastern Iowa Duck Race returns to Cedar Rapids. Over 17,000 Derby Ducks will be racing!
