Created in 2006 by the Naugatuck Chamber, the Duck Race features the release of over 20,000 rubber ducks from the Whittemore Bridge to race down the Naugatuck River. Each duck is vying to be among the first 20 to cross the finish line to win prizes, including the first prize of $5,000 for one lucky ticket purchaser. During the annual Duck Race & Festival, Maple and Water Streets in downtown Naugatuck are filled with food and craft vendors, live music, games, activities for children, and much more. Businesses also will exhibit their products and services to the more than 5,000 people who attend each year. Over the past 17 years, more than 375 organizations have received over $452,438 by participating in the Duck Race fundraising activities.
