24th Annual Pawcatuck River Duck Race
The 24th Annual Pawcatuck River Duck Race!
Date: Saturday, April 27th, 11:30AM - 2:00PM
What's the Duck Race all about?
20,000 rubber ducks are dumped into the Pawcatuck River on the Westerly, Rhode Island, and Pawcatuck, Connecticut border for a race that benefits 25+ local charities. Children's games, food booths, and other activities make this a wonderful family event.
The ducks are dropped from a front-end payloader on the side of the bridge. They land in the river in a controlled lane of oil booms established by more than 10 members of the US Coast Guard, working with community volunteers. The race is regulated by officials and spotters stationed with Numerous boats, nets, and buckets to retrieve all ducks. We are good stewards of the environment and can ensure the safe return of all ducks to shore.
Who is this fundraiser for?
This fundraiser is to help many local Schools and Non-profits raise money for their worthy causes.
