The Duck Stops Here!

Duckshow was super excited to attend Rockwall’s Rubber Duck Regatta this year! SO much fun was had! Here are some of the highlights of the day long rubber duck event to raise money for charity.

First up, the duck pageant! There were a so many creative ducks decorated for the contest. The winner was this Quack Sparrow design made by local business “Shenanigans.”

The People’s Choice (and my personal favorite) Award went to this Texas State Fair creation using the big duck as Big Tex made by the Rockwall Police Dept. Records Section. Howdy folks!

You can see most all of the ducks in the duck pageant on Duckshow’s facebook page.

The daytime duck derby was a ton of fun too! Here’s a few pics from that:

For the grand finale, a nighttime glow in the dark race was held! This was a duck race like no other! It was pitch dark outside and you could see the twinkling ducks race to the finish line. Here are a few photos of it:

The Rockwall Regatta was a super duper duckie good time! All for a good cause. And here is some of the swag that came from the “quack shack.” Can’t wait to “rock” these sweet duck shirts!

Monopoly Introduces Three New Game Pieces

Say goodbye to the boot, thimble, and wheelbarrow game pieces! A T-Rex, rubber ducky and penguin will join the five classic tokens Scottie the dog, hat, car, cat and battleship. This change came by way of an online vote held by Hasbro in January at Monopoly fans were asked to select their favorite eight tokens from 64 possible options. A total of 56 were entirely new, while the other eight were the classics. 4.3 millions votes later, the rubber duck was introduced to the new group of game pieces!

While we can’t say why these exact tokens were chosen or who exactly chose them, we know they represent the voices of our fans — young and old — from around the world,” said Jonathan Berkowitz, senior vice president of marketing for Hasbro Gaming.

In any case, hopefully the new lucky ducky will ‘duck’ out of jail and not have to spend to much time waddling around Baltic Avenue. Pass go and collect $200 rubber duck!

Giant duck on the loose!

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a duck!? A giant, inflatable duck blew through the streets of Glasgow, Scotland. Luckily, no one was hurt.

Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s six-story-tall bathtub toy proved very popular in Los Angeles— thousands were drawn to the waterfront to see it! It was so popular that it stayed an extra week (until Sept. 6). It was in the Los Angeles harbor making a special guest appearance at the Tall Ships Festival. Wonder where it will migrate next? Stay tuned!
