The Stockbridge Duck Race is a
charity event, held on the Water of Leith each June. The 2008
event was the 20th Stockbridge Duck Race.
The Water Wardens took to the
water five minutes before the ducks were released over the bridge at
Deanhaugh Street, Stockbridge.
The task of the Water Wardens
was to free any ducks that become stuck in the river during the Duck Race.
