Fitchburg celebrates our nation’s independence with a wide range of events called Civic Days. The events span an entire week. The Amazing Duck Race will be held on Sunday, July 9, 2017, 2016. The race will begin at 6:00 pm.
The race will be held at Riverfront Park. Local residents adopt ducks and race down the Nashua River on the last Sunday in June. The race was begun in 2008 and has become one of the town’s biggest fundraisers. Prizes are given away to the winners. The top prize is $1,000.00.
Watching the race is free. Adoption of a duck will cost you $5.00 each. You can adopt your own duck here.
Find out more about the parade on the town website.
