Looking for a fun way to enjoy the end of the summer season and support your local watershed group? The Wheatley River Improvement Group would like to invite everyone out to our 2015 Celebrate Our River Festival at Rackham’s Community Pond on Saturday, August 29th. There will be a BBQ starting at noon with free hot dogs and drinks available, any donations will be greatly appreciated. The annual River Duck Race will start at 1:00pm, so bring your family and friends out to enjoy the fun! Rubber ducks are released into Rackham’s Pond and race down to the Wheatley River Bridge. There will be cash prizes for those who hold the tickets for the first three ducks to reach the finish line! In addition to the popular River Duck Race there will be a Nature Scavenger Hunt and other kid-friendly activities.
You can pick up your River Duck tickets now from Gallants Food Market in Rustico or contact Kayla at the WRIG office in the Cymbria Lions Club for more details!
