Howsham Duck Race

Monday 7th May 2018, May Day bank holiday

1pm, Howsham Village Hall, the Tatterfoals Morris Dancers will start off our event with a Morris Dancing demonstration outside the Village Hall.

From 1pm Howsham Village Hall will be open for home baked cakes and refreshments and the chance to sponsor a duck ahead of the main event - Howsham Duck Race.

2pm, the crowds head off to the start of the race at Howsham Beck, once everyone has reached the start, the countdown begins and around 300 little yellow ducks are tipped in the beck. Whose will be the first to reach the finishing line??

There is a cash prize for the first three ducks across the line and a consolation prize for the last duck too.

After the race, everyone heads back to Howsham Village Hall for more cake and refreshments, the raffle and to hear the winners announced. A great, family friendly day out.
