BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- The 13th annual Bangor Rubber Duck Race takes place on Saturday, September 11 on the Kenduskeag Stream in downtown Bangor.
The Bangor Rubber Duck Race is an exciting family and community event. The rubber ducks will dive off the foot bridge behind the Pickering Square Garage and float to the finish line at the Central Street Bridge.
