Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta
This was the first year for the Rod Holland Real Estate Team to participate in the Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta! We had a great time! We entered our Big Tex Rubber Duck in the Corporate Duck Contest … here is a photo of him for your viewing pleasure! Yes, he is a cutie!
You may be asking what is the Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta? Well, it’s a great community event that raises money & is lots of fun too! It’s the signature annual fundraiser benefiting Boys & Girls Club of Rockwall County and Meals on Wheels of Rockwall County! Thousands of spectators watch thousands of rubber ducks splash into the fountain at the Harbor in Rockwall and race down towards the finish line. Duck Fest kicks off at the Harbor as the sunsets the fun gets going with a live concert, fireworks and a Glow in the Dark Rubber Duck race. On Saturday, the fun continues with the Running of the Nerds 5k and family walk followed by entertainment for all of the family! Not to mention, there is a Corporate Duck Beauty Pageant & Race, Rubber Duck Race, Arts, Crafts, Vendors, Food, Inflatables, and more.
We highly recommend that you grab your family & friends and attend the 2016 Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta! See ya there!

Top Ten List of State Fair of Texas Discounts!
Don’t Miss These Discounts At The 2015 State Fair of Texas! Loving Where You Live includes a visit to see Big Tex! Tell him Rod Holland Real Estate sent you!
Save a little money with these discounts … only so you have more to spend on Fletcher’s Corn Dogs, funnel cakes, and fried “everything”! Have fun & we will see you there!
1. Season Passes
If you plan on going to the State Fair multiple times, you owe it to yourself to buy a season pass this year more than ever. That’s because this is the first time they are offering a combo pack that includes discounts on ride and food tickets. For just $99, you get two season passes and 120 coupons, a grouping which would normally cost $140. This deal is only available online at BigTex.com
2. North Texas Food Bank Deals
Every person who brings in at least four cans of food on Wednesdays — September 30, October 7, or October 14 — gets in for $4. All food and drinks will be donated to the North Texas Food Bank.
3. Senior Deals
Seniors 60 and over have it made in the shade — or the sun, more likely — as they can get into the fair for $4 off every single day. But nothing can beat the deal they get every Thursday on Senior Day — October 1, 8, and 15 — as those lucky ducks get in for free.
4. McDonalds Coupons
The next time you eat at Mickey D’s, make sure to check your tray liner or bag for State Fair coupons. You’ll find ones for $5 off general admission any day, and ones that offer half-price tickets for kids when an adult pays full price. All coupons are good for ticket purchases at the gate.
5. Dr Pepper Deals
Don’t recycle those empty Dr Pepper cans. Save them …every person with one gets $5 admission on Tuesdays — September 29, October 6, and October 13 — or half-price tickets after 5 pm.
6. Thrifty Thursdays
Coca-Cola repeats its opening-day deal every Thursday, except this one gives you a $6 admission price for any empty 20-ounce bottle. You can combine that with a new deal for 2015 where various food vendors will offer discounted prices on certain popular items on Thursdays. Among the goodies you can get cheaper are Frito pie, funnel cake, & tornado taters.
7. KISS-FM Fridays
You can get $5 off general admission on Fridays — October 2, October 9, and October 16 — by going to the KISS-FM website and printing a coupon for every member of your group. Discount does not apply to senior or children’s tickets.
