Ahead of the 2014 Bonnyrigg Duck Race on January 26, the plastic birds will be going on sale for the first time this Saturday (November 30).
Priced at £2 each, they will be available at Cockpen and Carrington Church Hall, where a Christmas Fair will run from 10am until 5pm.
Race organiser Bill MacDonald (pictured) has one or two special prizes up for grabs. These include a saltire flag signed by Scotsman Jo McGhee, winner of the Vancouver marathon at the Empire Games in 1954, and a Manchester United mouse mat signed by Sir Alex Ferguson.
Ducks will also be going on sale at the Bonnyrigg Sainsbury’s store on January 18.
