Spinningfields Duck Race, Manchester

18 Apr

On Good Friday, we went into Manchester for the annual duck race. We try to go to local family events as often as possible, and we were determined to make it to the duck race after missing it last year.

Our day started with hot chocolates and sweet treats, before we walked across to Spinningfields for the race.

There was a small area with a couple of fairground games (hook a duck, obviously..), stalls, a bouncy castle and a giant inflatable duck. Our 4 little ducks joined thousands of other little ducks in the race down the canal! We were clearly on the wrong side of the canal as there appeared to be a BBQ on the go on the other side.

Unfortunately, we didn’t win, but we all had fun watching the ducks make their (rather slow) way to the finish line.
