Manchester’s annual Duck Race at Spinningfields is set to go quackers for its fourth consecutive year this Easter.
Costing just £1 for a racing duck, it is anticipated thousands will descend upon the banks of the River Irwell on Good Friday (March 29th) to watch their ducks race down the river and raise money for local children’s charity Brainwave.
There’ll be lots of great family activities on the day for all to enjoy, including giant tea cup rides, slides and a bouncy castle.
The day also includes a corporate race, in which businesses sponsor and decorate foot high rubber ducks for £200 plus VAT. Participating companies are urged to be as creative and stylish as possible when decorating their ducks, without any modification to enhance the duck’s performance.
To enter the race, simply visit www.spinningfieldsonline.com where ducks are available for purchase. Alternatively family ducks will be available to buy on the day, however families are being encouraged to purchase prior to the event to avoid large queues.
There will be a number of fantastic prizes available for the winning participants to get their hands on including gifts from The Avenue, our partners at Sale Sharks and more.
Family ducks and corporate ducks can be purchased online at spinningfieldsonline.com/spinningfields-duck-race.
