Finish the week with the return of the Short’s Glacial Hills Challenge on Sunday.

    The Rubber Ducky Festival’s biggest day is on Saturday, August 15th, when 2,000 yellow ducks are dumped into the Intermediate River, after Bellaire’s largest parade of the year, and race to the finish line at Riverside Marina. Participants can buy a $5 race ticket that corresponds to the number on a Rubber Duck. If you finish in the top 27, you win a cash prize!
