Laxey and Lonan Heritage Trust have all their ducks in a row for what promises to be a quacking day out.
After a few duckless years Laxey will relaunch one of the village’s favourite event of the year, The Great Laxey Duck Day Races.
The whole day event being held August 21 on the Washing Floors of Laxey Valley Gardens, will see the likes of bouncy castles, food stalls, local vendors, the iconic Bushy’s tent, live music, two performances by the Purple Helmets and of course the duck races.
Businesses and individuals can support the premier of the Bushy’s Senior TT Duck Race by sponsoring a £200 duck. This will be followed by the Junior TT Duck Race where the public will be able to buy a ticket for one or more ducks in the chance of winning £150 for the first duck to make it to the finish line.
Director of Laxey and Lonan Heritage Trust, Justine Ball, said: ‘After a tough year for the LLHT The Great Laxey Duck Day Races will not only help the Trust raise much needed funds to continue the restoration and conservation of island’s Industrial heritage; but also provide a great opportunity for local businesses; and attract more visitors to the area and raise the village’s profile.’
