Frome Carnival's Annual Charity Duck Race
"Charity duck race starting from Frome's Jenson Button bridge"

Quacking Fabulous

One of our favourite traditions is the annual duck race along Frome river. A spectacular 1000 plastic ducks are launched from Jenson Button Bridge in the centre of Frome and travel along the river.

Ducks are ‘sold' for just £1 and there are cash prizes for the first two ducks to cross the finish line! The duck which comes in last will get the £1 investment returned... The money raised from the duck race helps ensure that we can put the Carnival on each year.

Our special thanks go out to Frome Canoe Club and their team of wonderful canoeists who kindly fish out our 1000 ducks every year.

Watch this space for details of the date and time of our next duck race. You’d be quackers to miss it.
