EVENT UPDATE 9/5/22:
The event will now be held via a Live Facebook Feed at 10:30AM from the Western White Mountains Chamber of Commerce Facebook Page. Unfortunate weather conditions today are not conducive to a safe event on the river.

This is one event you won’t want to “duck out on”! The Western White Mountains Chamber of Commerce will hold its 26th Annual (Almost) World Famous Labor Day Rubber Ducky Regatta, on Monday September 5th at Cascade Park.

Over 1,500 ducks will race down the Pemigewasset River in a competition to see which duck will finish FIRST…and LAST! Adopt one duck, two ducks or a whole family of ducks for your chance at winning some great prizes like attraction tickets, restaurant gift certificates, merchandise, and more have been donated by our local businesses.

Duck adoptions can be done online, in person at the Chamber office, or day of the event! You do not need to be present to win!

Voting for “Best Duck Name” will be LIVE online this year from Monday, September 5th through Friday, September 9th.

This popular event is all it is “quacked up” to be… and one that people look forward to all summer long. It’s a great way for the entire family to enjoy the unofficial end of summer in the Basecamp of the White Mountains. This event raises money towards the chamber’s scholarship fund, which is awarded every year to a local high school senior. “Your support to this community is greatly appreciated. This scholarship will help me achieve a higher education and enable me to give back to my future community”. Sydney P, 2022 Scholarship recipient.

Thank you for continuing to support this event and the Lin-Wood community.
