Each year, thousands of small rubber ducks, each “adopted” for $5, are launched in the Passaic River and “race” to the finish line at the Passaic River Park. “Parents” of the ducks first crossing the finish line receive prizes donated by local businesses.
Dog Walk this year. Enter your dog for $5.
The Rubber Ducky Festival is a family-oriented afternoon of Fun, Food and Music featuring a selection of local kids' bands. Car Show, Rubber Ducky Race, Games, Waterballons, Moonwalks, and So Much More!
