Celebrate Our River Event and River Duck Race

Rackham's Community Pond

Saturday, August 25, 2018, 01:00pm - 03:00pm

The Wheatley River Improvement Group's Celebrate Our River Event and River Duck Race will be held August 25 from 1–3 pm at Rackham's Community Pond, 16 Rackham's Lane. Enjoy some time outdoors, meet fellow community members, WRIG staff and directors, and learn more about your local watershed group at this fun, family-friendly event.

There will be a BBQ at noon with free hot dogs and drinks—donations are greatly appreciated. There will be a scavenger hunt, kid-friendly activities, and watershed information displayed at the pond as well. The River Duck Race will begin at 1 pm, so bring your family and friends. The rubber ducks are released into Rackham’s Community Pond and race down to the Wheatley River Bridge. There are cash prizes for those who hold the tickets for the first three ducks to cross the finish line.

Get your duck tickets now from Gallant’s Clover Farm Food Market in Rustico or from one of WRIG’s staff members or directors.
