First Duck to finish on the Manning River (RRP: $1,000.00)

This is a very popular family event @TasteFest_on_the_Manning, that is great at engaging kids as well as adults! It's your chance to win $1000 for a $5 ticket per entry. Get your numbered duck now! The Rubber Duck Race is just that, a race between a large number of rubber ducks.

Each entry receives a numbered entry that correlates to the rubber duck entered in the race held @TasteFest_on_the_Manning. The ducks are launched into the Manning River and float with the tide. The first duck to finish the race as determined by the Race Organisers is awarded first prize to the value of $1000 AUD. All decisions by the race organizers are final and there is no right of appeal.

How to participate?

BUY a numbered rubber duck to represent your duck in the race. The rubber ducks are then let out at a selected starting point (depending on the tide on Saturday) in the river and the first to reach the finish line is the winner.

When is it on and where?

The Race is held as part of our community festival TasteFest. In 2023 the Food, Craft Beer, Wine, and Music Festival will be held on Saturday APRIL 1 in Queen Elizabeth Park, Taree NSW 2430

Do I have to be in attendance to win?
