If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a contestant in the annual Milford Harbor Duck Race on May 2. Hundreds of people watched anxiously as more than 5,000 rubber ducks were ceremoniously dumped by a big yellow payloader, escorted by a Knights of Columbus color guard, into the Wepawaug River to float slowly (against an incoming tide) across the finish line. The popular race, which has become the second largest annual event in Milford, is sponsored by the Milford Catholic elementary schools fo raise funds for St. Gabriel and St. Mary schools. The day, estimated to raise between $40,000 to $50,000 for the schools this year, includes a family fun run, a corporate duck race, the signature duck race, food and craft booths, games, music, balloons, a moon bounce, raffle and entertainment.
