The 1st Norwich Sea Scout Group has organised this year's Great Norwich Duck Race in association with Norwich City Council.

It takes place this Sunday at midday from the Lady Julian Bridge, at Riverside, as part of the Lord Mayor's Celebration weekend.

The Sistema in Norwich will also be bringing its children's orchestra to make the day go with a swing.

You can get your tickets for tomorrow's race at Chapelfield Gardens and at the stall on Hay Hill.

Once you have a duck, your name will be attached to it, and the duck will then be put into the big sack ready for race day.

There are cash prizes for the first five ducks across the finishing line, from £50 to £500.

This year's supporters of the 2014 Great Norwich Duck Race are The Queen of the Iceni, Cotswold Outdoor and Posters By Design
