The event attracts thousands of visitors, from near & far. This is not just a Duck Race. Throughout the day there will be
a variety of entertainment, including children's rides, charity stalls and live music. It's a fun day out for all the family.
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 9,000 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 and are now available on-line and from numerous shops and pubs in the town,
displaying brightly coloured posters, and from the Tourist Information Centre beside 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.
A big thank you to everyone who came to Hebden Bridge to support the 2016 Duck Race and help the Rotary club
support victims of the recent devastating floods that swept through the Calder Valley on Boxing day.

The Rotary Club asks all local businesses to be involved in a duckmania of their own by sponsoring larger
red, green or blue ducks which will have their own race prior to the main event.
All profits from the Duck Race, and other club events, are distributed to local and national charities.
