The Duck Race starts at approximately 3.15pm when the ducks are all launched at the same time into the river from St George's Bridge. Up to 10,000 individually numbered yellow ducks will race down Hebden Water to the finish line at West End bridge. Throngs of spectators watch from every possible vantage point.
Tickets for the Duck Race cost £1 each, available on-line and from numerous shops and pubs in the town,displaying brightly coloured posters, and from the Visitor Centre besides the Marina. Tickets will also be on sale from the Rotary stall in St Georges Square on several weekends before Easter and on Easter Monday.
Alongside the duck race, we hold a Business Duck race, starting before the main race at 3.00pm, principally aimed at local businesses and organisations.
Any organisation or individual can buy a green, red, or blue duck, at a cost of £10 per duck.
