Downtown is the place to be this summer!
A flock of ducks is making its way to the city and will be landing in downtown on June 21st (the first day of summer). The Downtown Improvement District presents Discover the Ducks Downtown, this summer’s outdoor beautification exhibit. The ducks will mimic last year’s Dino-Mite Summer program. The ducks will be designed and painted by local artists, coordinated through a partnership with Sprocket Mural Works. Fifteen colorful fiberglass ducks will be on display through September in various downtown locations.
Several events will be held in conjunction with Discover the Ducks Downtown.
To kick off the first day of summer, the Downtown Improvement District has teamed up with Kamionka Entertainment Group to host a Duck Race on Wednesday, June 21st at noon.
Downtown businesses will have rubber ducks available for the public to purchase and the ducks will be floated down Walnut Street. The person whose duck crosses the finish line first will be awarded $1,000.
Funds raised from this event will benefit the Harrisburg Fire Department.
A map and a list of the ducks will be available at ww.DiscoverTheDucksDowntown.com.
