Buy a duck and win the race
A duck race? Yes, that is correct! Nowadays there are some very unusual events on around Perth, most of them interesting and they are often something different. This duck race qualifies on both of these counts.

Will your duck be the winner of this exciting race?

Being held in Mandurah, it is easily accessible if you live in Perth as it is only a 50-minute drive down the freeway. Or you could always make a weekend of it with all the B&Bs, caravan parks, hotels and other accommodation located in this seaside town. You can get accommodation ranging from very cheap right through to five-star hotels - you just need to book them in advance.

The combined Rotary Clubs of Mandurah will be holding the annual Mandurah Rotary Duck Race and Family Fun Day on Easter Saturday 20th April 2019. The event will start at 10.00 am.

This community event is organised by Rotary and is an event that everyone can afford as it is a low-cost one with no entry fee for the entire community. It is held on the Eastern Foreshore of Mandurah Terrace, Mandurah.

The money raised by the Mandurah Rotary Duck Race and Family Fun Day will be used to support the following organisations and people:

Local surf lifesaving
Family and people in Mandurah who are battling
Rotary projects and programs
The Family Fun Day

The Family Fun Day starts at 10.00 am and during the day, there will be free activities for children and family, including:
Children's rides
Children versus parents tug of war
Sack races
Face painting
Food vendor stalls
Exclusive local art and craft work

The event delivers live local entertainment all-day, promoting local singers, bands and dancers on the main stage. The recycled boat races will be promoting local business, senior schools and sports clubs. These people will all compete to win the highly valued but useless Rotary Duck Race Trophies!

The World Class Duck Races
There will be two world-class duck races during the Family Fun Day and the first race will be the $50 corporate duck race, followed by the $5 duck race.

The ducks will be put in the water to race at the Mandurah Eastern Foreshore at around 3:00 pm - subject to tide and weather.

There will be only 500 plastic ducks for the corporate race and in this event, businesses can win:
1st prize: $5,000 West Coast radio business media Advertising Package
2nd prize: $1,000 business banquet
3rd prize: $500 travel voucher

You will be able to buy a ticket in the $5 duck race and watch up to 10,000 plastic ducks race for your chance to win:
1st prize: $15,890 Kia Picanto S Auto
2nd prize: $2,000 diamond setting
3rd prize: $700 Freedom Proangler 10 single kayak, paddle and seat.

You can purchase your tickets at this link.

There will also be the mascot and recycled boat races promoting local business, senior schools and sports clubs who fight it out to win the highly valued (yet useless) Rotary duck race trophies for these events.

This highly unusual event of duck racing will be a hoot and something that will make this into a really fun day for all.
