25th Annual (almost!) World Famous Labor Day Rubber Ducky Regatta takes place on Monday, September 6th! IN PERSON THIS YEAR!
This is one event you won’t want to “duck out on”! The Western White Mountains Chamber of Commerce will hold its 25th Annual (Almost) World Famous Labor Day Rubber Ducky Regatta, on Monday September 6th at Cascade Park.
Over 1,500 ducks will race down the Pemigewasset River in a competition to see which duck will finish FIRST…and LAST! Adopt one duck, two ducks or a whole family of ducks for your chance at winning some great prizes like attraction tickets, restaurant gift certificates, merchandise, and more have been donated by our local businesses. Duck adoptions can be done online, in person at the Chamber office, or day of the event! You do not need to be present to win!
We will also be hosting our duck naming contest! Voting for best duck name will take place via an online survey which will be posted on the event website, our Facebook page, and sent via email to everyone who purchased tickets online. Voting will begin at Monday, September 6th and end at noon on Friday, September 10th. Winners will be announced via email and social media during the afternoon of Friday, September 11th. If the same name is submitted, the person who submitted the name first will be the recipient of the prize if that name is chosen.
This popular event is all it is “quacked up” to be… and one that people look forward to all summer long. It’s a great way for the entire family to enjoy the unofficial end of summer in the Basecamp of the White Mountains. This event raises money towards the chamber’s scholarship fund, which is awarded every year to a local high school senior. “The support to this community is greatly appreciated. This scholarship will help me achieve a higher education, launching me into the business world.” Delaney P, 2020 Scholarship recipient. Thank you for continuing to support this event and the Lin-Wood community.
