Rubber Ducky, You're The One (of 30,000)
Rubber duckies aren't just for bathtubs. 30,000 will be racing in the Chicago River on August 9. The spectacle is a fundraiser for Special Olympics. You adopt a duck for $5 or get a Quack Pack (six ducks for $25) for a chance to win prizes. Each duck is given a special number and the winners will get prizes like a home theater package, a VIP weekend at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers, and the grand prize, a 2012 Chevy Equinox.
To adopt your duck visit the Windy City Rubber Ducky Derby website, and these rubber duckies could make much more than bath time lots of fun!
