Duck Race - Sunday, 5th June, 2016
1:00pm - 5:00pm
Free parking - Free entry
The Castlethorpe Duck Race is one of those events which will make you and your family smile.
Just 5 miles from Central Milton Keynes, something ‘pure’ happens every other year . We release 1000 ducks into the River Tove. Will your duck be first to cross the line to win you a cash prize?
Castlethorpe Duck Race is a unique event in Milton Keynes and as well as duck racing, we have live bands, a beer tent, lots of great food to choose from. There will be many and activities to keep the kids amused – and all in a glorious setting by the river. So come and spend an afternoon with us and…well a few ducks! Entrance is free and there’s free parking.
Oh, and don’t keep this to yourself. Please tell friends, family and work colleagues.
We are holding a Pre-Duck Race Treasure Hunt between 2 – 4pm on Sunday May 15th around Castlethorpe. It will start at Castlethorpe Church, at 2pm and involves finding 10 ducks around the village following the clues on the sheet. Each duck has a name and the first letter of all ten names becomes a very famous duck. A prize for everyone who works out the name of the duck including the adults! Entry is £1.00 per person.
There will also be the chance to purchase ‘Pimp your Duck' and accessories for the big day on June 5th and enjoy some refreshments too.
