Pequabuck River Duck Race

Sunday, May 6 at 10 AM – 3 PM

On Sunday, May 6th, 2018, 5,000 numbered rubber ducks will be dumped into the Pequabuck River as spectators watch them race to be one of the first ducks to cross the finish line, earning prizes for the ticket holder with the corresponding number. This all day event is more than just a duck race, it’s a family fun filled extravaganza.

Tickets are sold throughout the Bristol community for $5 each with all proceeds split between the Bristol Chamber of Commerce for beautification projects throughout the city and our race partners. Tickets will be on sale starting in late February. Check for a full list of ticket sales locations.

A portion of Central Street is closed in Forestville and vendors line both sides of the street promoting their goods. The day will kick off at 10 a.m. with the opening of the craft fair where vendors will be offering handmade goods. The Block Party, which starts at 11 a.m., will include food vendors, local businesses, shopping, face painting, balloons and much more. There will be bounce houses and free children’s games with prizes!

The day will be capped off with the big race at 2 p.m. with winners announced immediately after. Don’t miss this great family event!
