Glenfinart Walled Garden’s Harvest Fair delivered all its usual treats by way of food, drink and entertainment in its beautiful garden surroundings. However, the Fundraising ‘Quickest Quackers’ Rubber Duck Race down the River Finart was the highlight of the day.
During and since the Garden’s Easter Eggstravaganza, a place in the race could be secured by buying one or more of the 200 numbered ducks that took part. While the weather could have been better for an afternoon out, the rainy conditions provided a rushing river which added to the excitement of the race.
There was lively commentary by spectators as they approached the finishing line while plucky volunteers braved conditions at the mouth of the loch, skilfully catching the winners, along with all the other competing ducks. The winning numbers were: First – number 64; Second – number 196; and Third – number 87.
