Save the date to come out and cheer on thousands of participating rubber ducks as they race down the Passaic River in support of the initiatives of the Rotary Club of Berkeley Heights and local Boy and Girl Scout Troops on Saturday, June 8 at 12 noon.
The owner of the winning duck will receive a BIG prize and there will be music, fabulous food from Grain & Cane, a car show, children’s games and plus much more. This event has become a favorite tradition of both young and old in Berkeley Heights and the surrounding area..
