Cheer on thousands of colorful duckies as they race to the finish line at Cascade Lake in Hampstead Sunday. The annual Rubber Ducky Race, sponsored by Carroll Hospice, an affiliate of Carroll County General Hospital, pits ducky against ducky in a benefit swim. Participants can adopt a rubber ducky for a $10 donation and then watch it race to victory. Other activities include rides on the Cascade Lake water slide, live music, games, face-painting, clowns, magicians, a visit from the Oriole Bird, free food and more.
