Mallard Fest in Hanover
Sept. 19, 2015, Hanover
Hanover celebrates the arrival of fall with Mallard Fest, a tribute to the town’s Whistling Wings Hatchery.
The hatchery raises and exports more than 200,000 mallard ducks each year, and the annual Mallard Fest each September honors the duck with a parade, delicious food, games for the children, pontoon boat rides, music and fireworks.
Locals also compete in a duck-calling contest. The festival takes place in White Park on Monroe Street. For more details, call (815) 591-3512.
