One of Noblesville’s favorite community events, the annual Duck Race, will be held Sept. 12.
Duck race tickets are on sale now at the Thursday Market from 5 to 8 p.m. in the urban park located next to the Visitors Center at 839 Conner St.
Duck Race tickets are $5 each, and this year, the event features a guaranteed $1,500 cash prize for the first duck to cross the finish line.
Rubber ducks will be poured by the thousands into the river off the rail line bridge, just north of the Logan Street Bridge. The ducks will then swim south to the Logan Street Bridge where the first to cross the finish line will be picked up by a volunteer on a kayak.
Ticket sales are limited to 3,000 and will also be available at all Noblesville Main Street events and in four retail/restaurant locations downtown, including A Corner Cottage, Noble Coffee & Tea, Courtney’s Kitchen and Logan Village Mall during their normal business hours.
The race will begin at 5 p.m. and is a featured event as part of the Noblesville White River Celebration, which will feature music, food and entertainment on the Logan Street Bridge from noon to 6 p.m.
