The Wildquack River Festival 2012!Posted on: May 20th, 2012 by sueannmethot
As kids, we all remember our little rubber duckie floating around the tub or being our playmate in the pool, but what if you took 3500 of those little rubber duckies and and dumped them into Jackson Falls to race for prizes? You would have the Wildquack Duck River Festival! On Memorial Day weekend the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the Wildquack Duck River Festival in the Park behind the Snowflake Inn, with great food, fun, and a chance at winning $1000, it’s a blast! The day starts at 7am with the sale of ducks for the race. There are several different sizes to choose from, each varying in price and size. $6 per duck or $20 for four. Olympic ducks are $20 and BIG ducks are $100. Enjoy yourself and have some laughs at the town park before the event with Rob Clark as our master of ceremonies. At 1pm the parade kicks off with antique cars, giant ducks, and the Stuck duck patrol. Ducks are launched at the bottom of the picturesque white waters of the Jackson Falls. From there they float down the river towards the finish lines, with crowds on the river banks cheering for their duck to be the grand prize winner. Festivities run from 10am to 4pm. Tickets can be purchased at the Snowflake Inn. Give us a call!
