The Central CT Chambers of Commerce’s annual Duck Race returns Oct. 3. For its 16th year. The race will once again be offering participants the chance to race their rubber ducks down the Pequabuck River for their chance at winning a plethora of prizes. The event begins at 10 a.m. with a festival featuring food trucks, a variety of vendors, a kids’ zone, face painting and a chance to meet the race’s mascot, Wally the Duck. New this year, there will also be a Health Fair, with Hartford HealthCare, Bristol Health, Life Family Chiropractic, Della Porta Eyecare, CT Ears, and the BEST Coalition offering health screenings, information and covid-19 vaccines.
The festival starts at 10am and the Ducks race at 2pm.
