Get ready, get set, quack
Rotary’s duck race is on again
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.”
