The “Maker Duck” is a tribute to all of the sponsors of the inaugural Westport Mini Maker Faire that occurred on April 28, 2012. Along with flags with the logos of all of the sponsors displayed on the duck, the duck can be remotely controlled, driven around and includes large, colored LEDs that decorate it.
The Westport Sunrise Rotary Club is a major sponsor of the Westport Mini Maker Faire. All proceeds raised from the event go to support local organizations. Please support this event by buying a duck race raffle ticket from any Westport Sunrise Rotary Club member or at the merchants listed on the duck race Web site.
Please come out on Saturday, June 30 to enjoy the day and watch the ducks race. Admission to the event is free and the entire family is invited.
