Westport Summer 2014
Glorious weather ushered in the first day of summer, as Westporters celebrated at Jesup Green, along the Saugatuck River, at the 6th Annual Great Duck Race. The event, sponsored by the Westport Sunrise Rotary, raises money for local and international charities. As the crowd anxiously awaited the start of the race, they enjoyed the many activity booths, including children's crafts, face painting, food and a chance to send local elected officials into the dunk tank.
Also in display were the fun and creative entries, vying for the Best Decorated Duck trophy.
With a slightly delayed start, as last minute raffles were sold, the ducks were finally manuevered into place. As the front loader dumped them into the river, the race was on.
