Buxton & District Lions Club last held it's Carnival Day Duck Race in 2019. This year the 2021 Duck Race is back once again after Covid-19 and is planned to take place on the River Wye in the Pavilion Gardens. It is on Saturday 10th July at approx 4.15pm following a display by the Buxton Carnival Queen and her attendants.
Tickets will be on sale all day on the Promenade of the Pavillion Gardens at £1. The first three ducks home will win their ticket holders £100, £50 and £25 respectively. It is a great fun day and all the proceeds go to local charities including helping the Buxton Carnival.
