About The Race
Angelina Beautiful/Clean's biggest fundraiser of the year is the Amazing Turtle Race. This race is held every year at the Ellen Trout Zoo's Lake. Over 3,000 rubber turtles float down a pre-constructed racetrack on the lake. The turtles are numbered on the bottom and prizes are awarded to each winning turtle. Some prizes from previous races include a 12kt diamond necklace from Beard Fine Jeweler's, $500 Grocery Gift Card from Brookshire Brothers, gas cards from Polk Oil, and much more.
A FUN EVENT FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY!
