We’ve Got a Memorial Weekend Getaway Deal in the White Mountains!

Inflatable duck

Make plans for a holiday weekend getaway to the Inn at Ellis River and don’t miss Jackson NH’s 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Wildquack Duck River Festival, Sunday May 25, 2014! There will be more than $10,000 in cash or prizes, wagon rides through Jackson’s famous covered bridge, a Cake Boss Competition featuring local bakers, the 5 Minutes of Fame Stage, and of course, the Duck Races down the Wildcat River! The first duck across the finish line in the 25th Running of the Ducks wins a $1,000 prize, while other fast finishers win prizes for their ticket holders such as vacation stays, dining certificates, tickets to attractions, and more. We’ll be there to cheer our favorites on – in past years a guest’s duck was the big winner in the classic race, and the Inn’s “Chuck the Duck” won the Big Duck race.

Our guacamole certainly has migrated a long…
