WESTPORT - Hundreds of rubber ducks floated down the Saugatuck River today as part of the Sunrise Rotary Club's annual Great Duck Race.

The event, held in Westport, raises money for a number of charities.

The day also included plenty of games and activities for kids.     

State Representative and Rotary Club member Gail Laveille says it's a feel-good day for everyone involved.
     
"Everybody stops and watches the ducks like they do a horse race, and then you just kind of hang around and have a good time, but in the end it all goes to really good causes," she says.
