Annual Duck Splash Race
Visit historic Occoquan, Virginia, on Saturday, June 8, where once again at 2:00 p.m. Occoquan will be the site of the annual Duck Splash race. Watch hundreds of numbered rubber ducks drop from a bridge and race along the Occoquan River. Tickets to "adopt" a duck are $5. As in the past, prizes will be awarded for 1st through 10th place, and will range from $500 to $20. You do not need to be present to win.
