The 5th Annual Exeter Duck Race has joined forces with the Powder Keg Beer and Chili Fest at the Water Street Entrance of Swasey Parkway. It will be ducks, ducks and more ducks! Purchase one of 1800 little rubber ducks for only $5 or a “Quack Pack” of 5 ducks for $20. If your duck finishes first the prize is $1005, 2nd place is $250 and 3rd place is 50 tickets for the Chase the Ace jackpot drawing at Shooters Pub on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 at 7 pm (you do not need to be present to win). The Exeter Fire Department will drop the ducks from the ladder truck extended over the Squamscott River and the ducks will “swim” toward the Powder Keg Beer and Chili Festival. The duck drop will happen at 3:00 pm so be sure to purchase yours by 2:30 pm. Come cheer on your duck, you could be the big winner!
All Proceeds of the Duck Race support the Community Children’s Fund (CCF) which provides vouchers for warm bedding and clothing for needy children in the 10 communities served by the Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce. Since its inception in 1989 CCF has distributed nearly $1,000,000! Get your duck and help keep some kids warm this winter!
Thank you to Foy Insurance our underwriting sponsor for their generous support of this event.
