The Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta 2018

Duckshow took a trip down to the Lone Star State to attend one of the biggest rubber duck festivals in the country! 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 the Boys and Girls Club of Rockwall:

The duck race! It was raining cats and ……ducks ;) But that didn’t stop the ducks from racing down the fountain at the harbour!

There was also a duck pageant with prizes awarded to the top three judge’s picks and a people’s choice award of a popular vote. Here were the winners:

Third prize went to this ducktacular Star Wars themed design:

Second Place and also the people’s choice award went to the Sheriff’s Dept.’s design:

There was also a “shake your tail feathers” fun run, vendors, food trucks, live stage performances, kids zone full of moon bounces, “GloRace” with light up duckies, and several other fun activities. There was even a HUGE Texas sized rubber duck on the main lawn:

Austroducks Visits NYC

It’s been six years since Duckshow met up with creator of the Austroducks, Rudolf Doppelbauer. My how time “flies!” Austroducks is a line of Austrian themed rubber ducks…. Mozart and Sigmund Freud are among the eleven different styles from the collection. But it doesn’t stop there. There are also socks, cufflinks and stick pins with the ducks on them. Rudolf, who hails from Salzburg, Austria was in town for a few days and we managed to meet up again!

What better place to catch up and talk ducks than a place with duck decor. Sugar Factory is a place that started in Vegas and they finally made their way to NYC. They even have a disco mirror ball ducks in the entrance.

Austroducks has come a long way and is continuing to grow in heaps! The ducks are sold in many gift shops around the world, online, and Julliard is also interested in selling the ducks in their gift shop!

I was so excited to get some duck-tacular gifts from Austroducks that I must share! First off, I was given this ridiculously awesome Mozart cupcake….or duckcake as I call it. It’s so super cool that I still haven’t brought myself to eat it!

Rudi also gave me this really nice shower curtain. It has the Austroducks on it:

Some fun duck socks:

Some Austroduck patches and duck-alicious candy (there was more of the candy but they were eaten before the photo, heehee):

Some super neato postcards:

Of course the meet up wouldn’t be complete without a photo in front of the duck background in front of the Sugar Factory:

It was SO MUCH FUN! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Austroducks! I know it will be ducking amazing! Click here to see the Austroducks website.

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:

Monopoly Introduces Three New Game Pieces

monopoly duck

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.
