Community Nursery School of Wilton (CNSW) is holding the Second Annual Duck Dash on Saturday, Sept. 30 at Merwin Meadows from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.. Like last year, hundreds of rubber ducks will cross the pond and the first four to finish will win a total of $1,200 in Visa gift cards.

In addition to fun carnival games, face painting and food from Zawack Shack and College Creamery, this year’s additions include a bake sale, a show by Danny Magic, mystery duck boxes and the Chuck-a-Duck catapult. Each duck entry is $10 and tickets for games/activities will be available at the event.

After the Duck Dash is over, guests are invited to visit the school at an Open House from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30. Guests can swing by after the Duck Dash to meet some teachers, play on the playground and enjoy light refreshments
