Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Professionals, CT 203-206-0754 REB.0759001

It's getting close to that time of year again. The greatest (almost) race in  Naugatuck Ct.  From the starting line at Maple and Water Streets,25,000 rubber ducks will plunge into the Naugatuck River in attempt to win a prize for their owner.

The Duck Days race is a fun event for the residents of Naugatuck and the surrounding towns and is a fundraiser for the area's non-profit organizations. Volunteers sell tickets and receive half of the proceeds at the post celebration banquet.

In the past, this event has raised over $175,000 in donations to help worthy causes in the valley.

The event has become a tradition for many families and local businesses. There is free entertainment on the town green just a block away; train rides on the 'Roamin Railroad; kids games and face painting.

There are actually two races. The first race is the Corporate Race, with over-sized ducks sponsored by local businesses. Entries are $100 and can be obtained by calling the businesses located on the Duck Day web site.

At 2 pm the main race kicks off. Prizes for this event are a 3 carat diamond gold bracelet, a 42" Panasonic plasma HDTV; 4 box seats tickets for the New York Yankees vs Philadelphia Phillies on June 15; a Nintendo Wii console and value bundle or the grands prize of $5,000. Locations for purchasing 'Duck Contestants' can also be found on the Duck Day web site.

At the finish line for the photo finish to the race

Be sure to stop by for the Naugatuck Ct Duck Day Race, Sunday June 6 from 12 to 4 Pm.

A truly fun day for all

25,000 ducks? That could be an environmental disaster rivaling the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Or not. LOL

We do a Duck Race in Rockville Centre NY it is sponsored by the Rockville Centre Lions Club and my office supplies the hayride.  The event takes place in October and it is great family day and all the proceeds go to different charities in the area.  So glad to see another one in a neighbor state

Ed, sounds like great fun and a very creative way to raise money. 

Wow...25,000 rubber ducks...with all the other communities that stage a fundraiser like this, it sounds as though rubber duck sales is a good place to be.
