The Barwon Heads Festival of the Sea committee 2017 was thrilled to present duck number one to local cycling hero Cadel Evans.
The annual duck race on the river (where people purchase their racing duck for $10) has been attracting hundreds of locals and visitors for the past seven years. Prizes are donated by local businesses and sponsors.
The Festival of the Sea is a family friendly free weekend of celebrating links to the sea.
With environmental displays, arts activities and walks, pole sculptures, live music and kids zone events along with the popular quilting exhibition, the popular festival has something for everyone.
This year, the ‘Pot Luck Dinner’ on Saturday night will be followed by ‘A Night of Poetry and Song by the River’ to honour poets, past, present and future.
Songs by Sally Wilson and the Choir of Ocean Grove, the film, ‘Musica Surfica’ will also be shown at the Community Hall.
The festival is on Sunday 19 March.
