Just this past weekend, a rubber duck event of great proportions was held deep in the heart of Texas! The 2nd annual Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta in Rockwall, Texas was held as a fundraiser benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Rockwall County and Meals on Wheels of Rockwall County! Thousands of spectators watched 5,000 rubber ducks splash into the fountain at the Harbor in Rockwall and race down towards the finish line. Here are some pictures taken from the race just last weekend! The ducks all began at the top of the triple decker fountain and raced down to the finish line!
There was also a uniquie “duck pageant!” Sponsored by businesses, organizations, and individuals, these ducks were decorated by their owners, then put on display and judged at the Harbor on race day prior to the Corporate Duck Race. After the pageant winners were crowned, the ducks went on to race down the fountains, not for prizes, but for the coveted Golden Duck Trophy. Each year a new winner proudly displays this trophy. Here are some pics of some of the ducks that were…eh….duck-or-ated:
