Easter Monday brings Duckmania to Hebden Bridge in the form of the annual Duck Race, organised by the Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge.
Throughout the day there is a variety of entertainment, including children’s rides, charity stalls and live music from a local bands. It’s a fun day out for all the family.
The Duck Race starts at approximately 3.15pm when the ducks are all launched at the same time into the river from St. George’s Bridge. See the river turn yellow as up to 10,000 ducks enter the water for the race!
Tickets for the Duck Race cost £1 each, available on-line and from numerous shops and pubs in the town,displaying brightly coloured posters, and from the Visitor Centre besides the Marina. Tickets will also be on sale from the Rotary stall in St Georges Square on several weekends before Easter and on Easter Monday.
Alongside the duck race, we hold a Business Duck race, starting before the main race at 3.00pm, principally aimed at local businesses and organisations. Any organisation or individual can buy a green, red, or blue duck, at a cost of £10 per duck.
