Each year a few thousand people head to the always beautiful and normally quiet town of Shelford, and the 10th annual Duck Race is set to be an even bigger and better event.

This year you will be entertained and get hands-on with Afrobeat interactive drumming shows as well as enjoying Food vans, Coffee, Ice cream, Licenced bar, Craft stalls, Kid’s amusements, Demonstration, Fun competitions.

The ever-popular Show-n-Shine is a chance to display your pride and joy or vote in the people’s choice award. 

The Ducks are extra keen this year, so an earlier start time of 2.30 will see 1000 bright little toy ducks set off down the lovely Leigh River. One lucky person will walk away with a $1000 prize, and another five will share in the loot. Get a $10 ticket on the day or go online at
