Posted

MILTON — Historic Milton’s Bargains on the Broadkill and the Great Duck Race will take place this year in August. 

The event will be Saturday, Aug. 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at riverfront Milton Memorial Park in downtown Milton.

What started years ago as a small yard sale for Milton residents has grown into a full-blown regional festival, featuring vendors of art, crafts, goodies and food. Entertainment will be provided and the festival will be fun for the whole family.

The festival’s signature event, the Great Duck Race on the Broadkill, offers the opportunity to win cash prizes rubber duckies will be for sale in the weeks preceding the event and on the day of the event. The ducks will be released into the river at the end of the event and as always, you do not have to be present to win. Winners will be announced on Facebook page and contacted directly after the festival.

The entrant whose duck is the first to cross the finish line receives a cash prize of $500 from the Milton Chamber of Commerce. Additional winners will receive cash prizes donated by Chamber members. To sponsor a duck or buy a duck, email chamber@historicmilton.com.

This year’s festival also features the annual Irish Eyes Canoe & Kayak Race. For more information on the Canoe & Kayak Race, visit the website.
