The largest public event in Bungay’s festival celebration will take place this Sunday when the Great Bungay Duck Race starts on the River Waveney at Falcon Meadow.

Three races will take place, the cash prize-winning duckling descent of Bungay’s Weir, an 80 strong business-sponsored duck race, and a special race for children’s decorated Puddleducks.

The Puddleduck race will see youngsters from Bungay, Ditchingham and beyond customise their creations and make any final adjustments or decorate late entries at a special design centre tent on the meadow.

The event, from 12pm to 4pm, also features live music, donkey riding for kids, food for all, and a real ale supplied beer tent.
