Chicago Holds Annual Rubber Duck Race In Chicago River

Things were just ducky in Chicago. Thousands of rubber ducks were dropped into the Chicago River to start the Windy City Rubber Ducky Derby on August 3, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. Derby organizers dropped 60,000 rubber ducks into the river to start the race which helps to raise about $350,000 for Special Olympics Illinois. The sponsor of the first duck to float across the finish line was awarded a new SUV.
