The three Mandurah Rotary clubs, RC of Mandurah, RC of Mandurah Districts and RC of Mandurah City, will again join forces to stage the ninth Mandurah Rotary Duck Race on Easter Saturday, 15 April 2017, in conjunction with a Rotary Family Fun Day and Fair, including stalls, entertainment and activities for families young and old.
Objectives include - to provide a family fun day at Easter to benefit the Mandurah community and visitors; give Rotary some positive public exposure; and to raise funds for Peel youth and Rotary projects and programs run by the three participating clubs.
The Family Fun Day starts at 10.00am with activities for children and family that include kid’s rides, face painting, speciality food stalls and exclusive art & craft works for the family and much much more.
A day long entertainment program showcases local singers, bands and dancers on the main stage throughout the day.
The Mascot Race along the central boardwalk will be on again and this year there will be the Surf Life Saving Race on the water. The Mascot Race is a fun filled spectacular with a no rules race involving mascots from local business and sporting clubs racing against each other to win a useless trophy.
The Family Fun Day and Duck Race is all about Rotary hosting a safe alcohol & drug free event for families in Mandurah, the Peel Region and visitors to Mandurah. Rotary aims to positively promote local businesses such as speciality food, arts & craft producers along with youth entertainment performers and sports & service clubs to the community and through community participation raise funds for charitable donation back to the community at a local, national and international level.
The Mascot Race will be held at 11.00am on the main walkway of the Eastern Foreshore.
