Padiham Duck Race

Got back from the lakes in time for the annual Padiham Duck Race. It's such fun.  You pick a duck for a pound and then they are all thrown off a bridge on a river and race downstream to the weir.  Everyone follows their progress and it's always an exciting finish.

And they're off! The Duck Race begins.
Excitement mounting as the ducks pass under the bridge.

Didn't win anything. Maybe next time.
