The Looe 2023 Duck Race is almost upon us, on the 20th August there will be the annual Duck race loved by locals and visitors alike, last year the Looe River Duck Race took place on 28th August 2022 when 5,000 plastic ducks were tipped over the Looe Bridge and floated down the river from the bridge to the Lower Ferry Steps. The ticket holders for the first 5 ducks to complete the course (as determined by the duck catchers in the river) won cash prizes. The proceeds are in aid of the good causes that the Looe Lions support.
Do please note that all ducks are recovered from the river by the ‘duck wranglers’ using nets across the width of the river ensuring that they do not pollute the sea (or harm any ducks).
For further information please contact Looe Lions.
