Tickets can be purchased at two locations:   Periwinkles, on North Union Avenue downtown Cranford, or the Cranford Canoe Club on Springfield Ave.  

Purchase a single Duck for $5.00 or a flock of 5 ducks for $20.00. Please secure your tickets early as ducks are limited and the race has been known to sell out.

​​Ducks are not sold at the event and must be purchased in advance.

All proceeds benefit the ongoing maintenance and restoration of Hanson Park.

Hanson Park Conservancy’s 7th Annual Rubber Ducky Derby is scheduled once again for Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 4 pm. 

On race day, over one-thousand individually numbered rubber ducks will be released in the Rahway River at Sperry Park and tumble over the falls racing to the finish line at the North Union Ave Bridge.

Numerous prizes for the fastest lucky duckies will be awarded. 

The top prize is a $250.00 gift card!
