Havelock North 10th Annual Duck Race!

Two thousand rubber ducks will take to the water on Sunday May 20 setting a quacking pace for 10th annual Havelock North Duck Race. It will be spec-QUACK- ular!!

We‘d love you to get involved This year to mark a decade of family friendly fun we are looking to make the race the biggest, the best and most successful yet and we‘d love you to get involved! For 10 glorious years now our local community and businesses nationwide have helped support the children of Havelock North Central Kindergarten by donating time, prizes, money and support to our duck race.

This is a community event for the whole family to enjoy. It includes face painting, cake stall, ducky dip, sausage sizzle, bouncy castle, Oooby (out of our own backyard) stand, lots of laugher and in fine kindergarten fashion bundles of fun! It’s a Quacking good time!!

How can you help? We are looking for donations of prizes and vouchers to award our lucky winners on the day and to offer as spot prizes in the day. (The chance to donate and be a part of race prize packs will close mid-April and all received after this date will be put into our general prize pool.) If you are not a business that can provide either of these things – don’t worry! – We have another way you can help us out! You can buy a ‘deluxe duck’ by donating $50 or over.

How does the duck race work? Easy, we float 2000 numbered ducks down the Karamu Stream and the winning ducks win their lucky ticket holders awesome prizes! There are stalls, food and family friendly fun for everyone to enjoy!

If you require more information please don’t hesitate to email me, Rebekah Porou – Race coordinator havelockduckrace@gmail.com and I will be in touch as soon as possible.
