LONG WEEKEND: Port Broughton's rubber duck race returns to the bay again this October long weekend.

Port Broughton's popular rubber duck race event is back this October long weekend.

On Sunday, October 6, starting from 11am, the Port Broughton Sailing and Boat Club will again hold its annual Race Day on the Bay releasing about 700 ducks to race across the bay.

You can purchase your duck for $3 ready to race and pick-up your duck after the race.

There will be a $1.50 barbecue and drinks for $1.50 also available, with games for the kids and adults before the race.

The ducks are already in training and have their numbers.

Anything can happen and usually does and depending on the weather can reach the shore in a matter of minutes or in an hour.

Part of the fun is watching them come under the jetty jostling for a place and then finding your duck on the foreshore afterwards, unless yours is one of the 10 winners.

There is also the little duck hunt around town and the best dressed duck competition and pick a key to unlock the treasure chest.

This is an inexpensive fun day of memories for the family to remember with many young parents bringing their kids to an event that they remember.

Ducks for the race and the dress up competition are available from several businesses around town in the weeks before or from 6 John Lewis Drive, or on the day on the foreshore from 10am.

And you do not have to be present on the day.

Remember .... anything can happen and usually does.
