At this event, 3,000 rubber ducks are released into the Boston Harbor to race in the inaugural “e” inc. Duck Dash. Funds raised through the family friendly festival, which includes music, food, fair games and science activities, support the second rotating exhibit, Our House: Rethinking Home in a Changing Climate, at the newly opened “e” inc. Environment Science Discovery & Action Museum.
How it works: Rubber ducks are $10 each and must be purchased in advance. Each duck has a corresponding number for participants to monitor their progress during the race. The first place winner receives a $350 cash award. Other Duck Dashers have the opportunity to win prizes donated from local and Boston-based businesses.
