CRANFORD’S ANNUAL DUCKY DERBY RETURNS THIS OCTOBER
Hanson Park Conservancy’s Eighth Annual Rubber Ducky Derby is scheduled once again for
Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 4 pm. On race day, over one-thousand individually numbered
rubber ducks will be released in the Rahway River at Sperry Park and tumble over the falls
racing to the finish line at the North Union Ave Bridge. Numerous prizes for the fastest lucky
duckies will be awarded. The top prize is a $250.00 gift card.
Tickets can be purchased at two locations: Periwinkles, on North Union Avenue downtown
Cranford, or the Cranford Canoe Club on Springfield Ave. Purchase a single Duck for $5.00 or a
flock of 5 ducks for $20.00. Please secure your tickets early as ducks are limited and the race
has been known to sell out.
All proceeds benefit Hanson Park maintenance and educational programs. If you have not yet
walked through this lovely little park, please visit this hidden gem located at 38 Springfield Ave.
