Keep the springtime fun going at Dalkeith Country Park on Sunday 05 May. Watch as your trusty quacker races down the river Esk. Whose duck will be the first to reach the bridge and win a quacking prize?

And it’s not just ducks! You’ll find tasty treats from local food vendors, refreshing Cold Town beer, face painting, live music and a prize-tastic raffle. Oh and did we forget to mention that the iconic Doddie tractor will be joining us for the day! Climb aboard for fun family photo opps.

Book your tickets now and support a great cause – all the funds raised from ticket sales will be donated to My Name is Doddie’5 Foundation.

Tickets & Details
Tickets are £5 per duck and can be purchased in advance with all ticket proceeds going to My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.

We also invite you to consider adding an extra donation of £5, £10, or £15 at checkout in aid of MNDF.
