Duck Race 2012
The 2012 Duck Race!
Our 6th Annual Rubber Duck Race took place on Thursday, July 12, 2012 at Third Beach in Middletown RI. Over 600 rubber ducks swam the race course; raising over $6000 that will be used to fund educational programs for Middletown public school students.
The party started at 5pm on the beach with a DJ and party games for the kids in the family.
The Duck Race itself started around 6:30 and finished in record time. The tide was heading out this year, so the race course was a little turned around. The starting line was at the beach heading east toward Little Compton!
Here’s the winning duck crossing the finish line! It was a close finish with the first two ducks raising neck and neck, but Duck 614managed to pull out the win! Congratulations to M. Lavoie for picking the winning duck and winning the Grand Prize.
