The Comox Rotary Club’s annual Ducky 500 race has raised thousands of dollars for charity!  2017 will be the 30th Annual. On Canada Day, 5,500 plastic ducks will be released into the Courtenay River at the Condensory Bridge and will race their way to the finish line at the 5th Street Bridge.

Buy your ticket from any member of the Rotary before Canada Day.  Tickets will also be available along parade route and in Lewis Park on Canada Day before 12:30pm.

It is great fun watching all the little yellow ducks swimming down the river, don’t miss it!
