Raritan River Festival and Rubber Duck Race
September 24, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Come on down to the annual festival to combine community entertainment and celebration with environmental awareness for the Raritan River with entertainment, food, vendors, activities, a cardboard canoe race, and a rubber duck race.
During the race, up to 5,000 rubber ducks will drop from their giant duck egg into the Delaware Raritan Canal at the newly-renovated Boyd Park and race to the finish line to see which “lucky duck” owner wins the Grand Prize.
Proceeds benefit the Beez Foundation, which will host “Duckland” at the festival. Find games, entertainment, and activities for kids and adults all day.
