The Auburn Junior Woman’s Club announces its 15th Annual Memorial Day Duck Race on Monday, May 29th. The race will begin immediately following the parade, which starts at 10:00am.

The race starts at the Auburn Pubic Library grounds (Mirror Pond in the back), where all purchased ducks will be dumped into Mirror Pond from the top of the AFRD Tower 1. The ducks travel over the waterfall and down the brook to the finish line.

There is a $500 first place prize to the duck that crosses the finish line first, plus many more prizes.  There are free activities for children. Ducks can be adopted the day of the event at the fire station during the parade, and at the library prior to the race.  Ducks may also be purchased ahead of time at Coco’s Tropical Ice, 1 Swanson Rd.  You do not need to be present to win.


Free Parking.  For more information, or to adopt your duck, email
