Are you ready to race? Then come down to Riverside Park on New Years Day and participate in the annual SES Duck race. You never know, you might have the lucky duck to take home the cash, or if not, you have still helped raise some much needed funds for volunteer services.The day itself is unique. The Murray River is transformed into a sea of bright yellow with thousands of plastic ducks racing their way towards the Swan Hill bridge.The first duck across the line wins you $10,00 cash, second place wins $600 - there are prizes right down to sixth place. Tickets will be on sale from the 3rd December 2016 right up until the start of the race.Prior to the duck race, there will be an emergency services raft race at 1.15 p.m. The festivities continue with local emergency services challenging each other to a raft race, with three teams of five people ferrying each other across the river on home-made rafts.
