Carnival Day Duck Race 2019

 

 

Buxton & District Lions Club now have their 2500 ducks in full training ready for the annual Carnival Day Duck Race, which takes place on the River Wye in the Pavilion Gardens.  The starting pistol is usually fired at around 4.15 p.m., after the parades in the main arena have finished, with cheering crowds lining the banks of the river.

 

Numbered tickets – each number corresponding to a number on a duck’s bottom - will be on sale every day at Morrison’s supermarket from Monday 8th to  Friday 12th July, prior to race day, and then during race day itself in the main Pavilion Gardens arena area.  The first three ducks home win their ticket holders £100, £50 and £25 respectively.

 

Our purpose is “to serve”, and this includes raising money to help others.  Duck race ticket sales raise over £2000 and nearly all of this (less just the prize money and printing costs)  is redistributed to support local community projects and individuals in need.
