On Sunday, May 7th, 2017, 5,000 numbered rubber ducks will be dumped into the Pequabuck River as spectators watch them race to be one of the first ducks to cross the finish line, earning prizes for the ticket holder with the corresponding number. This all day event is more than just a duck race, it’s a family fun filled extravaganza.
