Austroducks Newest Creation!

Johann Strauss duck

This little golden nugget is the newest creation in Austroducks’ line of Austrian themed ducks. This little duck is no other than Austrian composer…..Johann Strauss! Known as “The Waltz King”, Strauss was largely responsible for the popularity of the waltz in Vienna during the 19th century. He composed over 500 waltzes, polkas, quadrilles and other types of dance music, as well as several operettas and a ballet in his lifetime. Leave it to Austroducks to make a duck of this renown Austrian composer!

The Austroducks line is growing rapidly with famous Austrian themed ducks….such as Mozart, Sigmund Freud, and Gustav Klimt among others. The ducks are carefully crafted and hand painted….making them a must have for duck collectors. The detail of the new Strauss duck is impeccable…and the hair and mustache add a perfect touch to the character of the duck. Bravo Austroducks!

A Duck Show

Gallery ducks

Over in Columbus, OH a special exhibition is taking place. Seamus Liam O’Brien has created these pastel drawings of rubber ducks! Any duck collector who has a look at these drawings will know exactly which ducks have been drawn in these pieces. I recognize some of the ducks in the drawings from my rubber duck collection! It’s so fascinating to see them drawn in such a large scale!

Gallery Duckies

“The installation entitled “Happiness” was composed of multiple large scaled colored drawings of individual rubber ducks. The piece is a reflection of my memories of Walt Disney World… individuals finding enjoyment and pleasure by being completely enveloped within a colorful childlike environment,” says Seamus.

AIC’s Loon Race is a Success!

AIC's Loon Race 1

The first annual Spring Loon Drive at the Adirondack Interpretive Center was a great success and Duckshow is excited to share the news and some photos from the event! You can see the spectators above watching with bated breath as their loons race down the waterway. Go loons, go! This loon race was historical as it was the first rubber duck/loon race where all the rubber loons were 100% American made-thanks to Celebriducks!

Rubber Loon Race

The first loon crossed the finish line in just over 40 minutes with the rest of the flock strung out behind. The front runners trickled in while others enjoyed a more leisurely float downstream, pausing to check out various eddies, sedges and shorelines. Our course officials (Jen, Sarah, Teagan, and Tina, a.k.a. The Loon Brigade) encouraged them back onto the course ;) In first place was Loon #57 sponsored by Richard Hai, with second and third places going to Lauinda Minke and Charles Smith. There were also some raffle winners drawn (Duckshow being one of them! Good job Loon #30! ;) for prizes during the post-race celebration.

Loon Race 2

The generosity of many businesses and individuals who donated time, energy, and prizes helped make the Loons & Logs event a success! Some of those groups and businesses are: Ali Baba’s Liquor and Wine , Newcomb Historical Society, WDs Country Store, Cloud Splitter Outfitters, Nina Schoch, Town of Newcomb, Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, Adirondack Park Institute (API), High Peaks Kitchen, Cyber Creek Cafe, Hoss’ Country Store, Northern Borne, Scoops Ice Cream & More, ESFs AEC: Stage Fund, ESFs NFI, Finch Paper, NCPR, and The Cellar.

Loon Race 3

The AIC has programming throughout the summer so stop by and see what the center has to offer! If you aren’t from around Newcomb, or would like to be more involved with the AIC, you can stay in touch with them on Facebook and Twitter where they regularly post updates on their programming and other events at the center.
