Cowra Festival Duck race makes a popular return

Have you got your ticket in the Festival duck race yet?

To avoid confusion, you get a ticket number for the race but don’t get to take the duck, to ensure all ducks start together.

The Festival Duck Race is on March 24.

All you have to do is purchase a ticket and then sit back and watch your duck as it races down the river - first to reach the Low Level Bridge from the starting point at the Cowra Pump Station alongside River Park is the winner.

Businesses and community groups can purchase Gold Class Ducks for $50.

Cost of tickets for individual small ducks are $5.

The ducks will take to the water at 4pm.

First prize for individuals is $300, second is $200 and third $100.

The winning business duck will win a $500 Cowra Cash Card for its owner.

Duck tickets can be purchased from the Cowra Bendigo Bank branch, Cowra Shire Council, in Kendal Street the Cowra Visitors’ Centre and keep an eye out for Rotary members in front of Woolworths Supermarket during the next week.
