26th Annual Rubber Ducky Regatta
September 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
26th Annual (almost!) World Famous Labor Day Rubber Ducky Regatta
The Western White Mountains Chamber of Commerce will be hosting its 26th Annual (Almost) World Famous Labor Day Rubber Ducky Regatta, on Monday September 5th. We’ll launch close to 1,500 ducks into the Pemigewasset River at Cascade Park in North Woodstock, NH where these ducks will race down the river, over rocks and down waterslides in hopes of finishing the fastest in this annual race. Spectators and kids are welcome to get into the river and along the banks of the river to help our assist our ducks if they happen to get stuck in between a rock and hard place.
There will be crafts and activities for the kids while we’re waiting for the race to begin and winners will be announced following the conclusion of the race. You don’t need to be present to win, we’ll contact all winners by phone and email on Tuesday, September 6th. Full prize list will be added to this page soon.
“Adopt” a single duck for $5 or five ducks for $20. Duck adoptions can be done in person at the Chamber office through Labor Day weekend, the day of the event at Cascade Park or online until 8pm on Sunday, September 4th. Click here to purchase. This event raises money towards the Chamber’s scholarship fund, which is awarded every year to a local graduating high school senior.
