Annual Duck Race

April 2 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Last year we had so many visitors to the Town that we sold out of ducks, so to avoid disappointment, why not get ahead of the game and sponsor yours beforehand? Ducks can now be sponsored at the following locations around the town:
Town Council Offices, St Margaret’s Hall
Timbrell’s Yard
The Doghouse
Strawberry Blue
Of course, ducks will also be available to sponsor for £1 each from 11am on the day in Westbury Garden, and why not make a day of it and go to the Lions Club Easter Bonnet competition and Egg Hunt in Victory Field from 10am?
There are lots of fabulous eateries in Bradford on Avon too, so you’ll be just in time for lunch!
The Duck Race starts from the Town Bridge at Noon and our ducks, depending on the river flow, waddle or race to the finish line at the McKeever bridge, where winners will be retrieved and their sponsors announced.
We also look forward to seeing your photos after the event, so if posting any on social media, use the hashtag #BoAduckrace
Please note; We reserve the right to cancel the race in the case of river levels/flow being deemed too high/fast for Canoeists to safely manage the race. We aim to give 24 hours notice of any cancellation.
