Nice weather we’re having — for ducks.
Well, you’re finally in luck. Tomorrow a duck could win you 5000 bucks.
The Great Duck Race is a (sort of) new event. It replaces The Great Race, in which homemade boats goofily made their way down the Saugatuck River. The Great Race sunk a decade ago.
Tomorrow, up to 2500 rubber ducks will float — er, “race” — from Gorham Island to the Post Road bridge. Tickets cost $20 per duck; the 1st 10 ducks earn their owners $500 to $5000 Visa gift cards.
The main event will be preceded by a preliminary race for corporate sponsors. Family activities begin at 11 a.m., with children’s arts and crafts, games, music, food and drink.
