Noblesville Main Street’s Duck Race, in its second year, will be held Sept. 12.

Duck race tickets are on sale now at the Thursday Market from 5 to 8 p.m. in the urban park located next to the Visitors Center at 839 Conner St.

Tickets are $5 each and this year the event features a guaranteed $1,500 cash prize for the first duck to cross the finish line.

Rubber ducks will be poured by the thousands into the river off the rail line bridge, just north of the Logan Street Bridge. The ducks will then swim south to the Logan Street Bridge where the first to cross the finish line will be picked up by a volunteer on a kayak.

Ticket sales are limited to 3,000 and will also be available at all Noblesville Main Street events and in four retail and restaurant locations downtown, including A Corner Cottage, Noble Coffee & Tea, Courtney’s Kitchen and Logan Village Mall during normal business hours.

The race will begin at 5 p.m. and is a featured event of the Noblesville White River Celebration on the Logan Street Bridge the same day.

The White River Celebration kicks off at noon and will also feature live music. The Bridge Fair includes art and creative activities for families to try, live music, food and a beer garden hosted by Courtney’s Kitchen, 654 Logan St.

All booths will highlight the White River. Schwartz’s Bait and Tackle, 118 Cicero Road, will also feature family fishing including the use of a rod and reel, bait and instruction beginning at noon and ending at 4 p.m. The Noblesville Fire Department will also join in on the fun, displaying the ins and outs of its fire trucks to the public.
