Kick off your summer season in the White Mountains with Jackson’s own annual, very fun 28th Annual Wildquack Festival and Duck Race on Memorial Day Weekend!
This much-anticipated and wacky event takes place starting at 8 AM on Sunday, May 28, 2017. Watch approximately 3,500 rubber duckies race down Jackson Falls starting at 1:45 PM for a chance to cash and other exciting prizes. Don’t miss this classic New England village festival with its Cake Boss Competition, “5 Minutes of Fame” competition, Silent Auction Tables, Parade, Artisan Tents, food vendors, and of course see all those adorable yellow ducks tumbling down Jackson Falls to the finish line. Welcome summer with a 2 (or 3 if you like) night stay and enjoy:
- ‘Good Luck Duck’ hors d’oeuvres Saturday evening
- Two official duck entries in Sunday’s race (post time 1:45 pm) (Additional ducks to enter are $6 each or 4 for $20)
- A souvenir ducky to take home
- Breakfasts and afternoon refreshments, of course ~ they’ll be ducky!
You could win cash prizes, overnight getaways, ski passes, golf passes, dining gift certificates, train rides, and much more if you’ve got a lucky duck – more than $10,000 in cash and prizes!
Since this is a long holiday weekend, why not stay 3 nights? Your third night is at a discounted rate if you go for it!
