Duck Race 2019
Get yourself a duck! (Sat 18.05.19)
Our Fox has not been able to hunt for many ducklings yet but, on Saturday 18th May at 3pm, there is a chance to make up for missed opportunities! – 16.000 rubber ducks will be released in the Pétrusse valley (next to the SkaterPark) for the Duck race, where the proverbial lucky duckling wins a major price, a VW UP, to be specific. Individual ducks will do everything in their modest power to win this race for their owners for the capital sum of 5 euro, all dedicated to charity.
Initially a very typical Luxembourgian event, the Duck Race has become a major fundraiser that continues to gain substantially in popularity over the past few years. The ducks will be launched onto their perilous journey past large crowds of expecting spectators, drink stalls and freshly barbecued pork slaps near the minigolf course in Rue Saint-Quirin in the Pétrusse valley. However, the fun already starts at noon with food and drinks and more entertainment on offer. – What are you waiting for?! – Get your rubber duck for 5 euros
