Rambling and Meandering

We went to Duck Day on Sunday (I know! I am a few days behind;))

It is a rubber ducky race~ a payloader tosses a quarter of a million rubber ducks into the Naugatuck River and the first 50 ducks to reach the finish line win:) It was way fun....

Some pics....

This was attached to the bucket of the payloader...

In the river....

Jun. 3, 2008 at 8:02 PM how fun...does the money go to charity?  or do you buy a duck?  we had one similar to that here..you bought a duck and if you won the money went to charity and you got part of it.  :)

Thanks everyone:)

You do buy a duck, they are 5 bucks a piece (spensive lil stinkers!) Then, the money goes to various town charities~ there are donations that are the prizes such as a vacation for 4 to disneyworld, Miley Cyrus's autographed guitar and many, many more. 50 in all:)

It was a really fun day:)
