IT’S time to get your ducks in a row for the an­nual Kingscliff Ro­tary Club Duck Race on Cud­gen Creek.

Bring the fam­ily down to Ed Parker Ro­tary Park, Kingscliff for a fun day of rac­ing rub­ber ducks, jump­ing cas­tles, food trucks and an­i­mals on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 22.

Or­gan­iser Jayne Henry said the fundraiser would help to im­prove the park’s in­fra­struc­ture.

“What we do with the funds we raise is we put them back into the Ro­tary Park at Cud­gen Creek,” Ms Henry said.

“We’ve put in show­ers and seat­ing and we work with coun­cil to put in ba­sic in­fra­struc­ture for fam­ily to use the pub­lic space. We’re look­ing for­ward to hav­ing a com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion process on the day to see what peo­ple would like.”

She said par­tic­i­pants were en­cour­aged to dec­o­rate their rac­ing ducks be­fore the com­mu­nity and cor­po­rate races.

“We’ll have the dec­o­rat­ing sta­tion,” she said.

“We’ve had some dif­fer­ent kind of win­ners whose de­signs have re­flected some­thing to do with their busi­ness.

“We’ve had plumbers put them on toi­let seats and beau­ti­cians put make-up on their ducks.”
