This Saturday, a few thousand yellow rubber ducks will plunge from the Route 123 bridge into the Occoquan River, where they will race to the town docks.
The ducks are up for adoption and will be individually numbered so that those adopting winning ducks will take home monetary prizes.
First-place prize is $500, second through fifth-place prizes are $100 each, and sixth through 10th-place prizes are $20 each. To adopt your own duck, and to find out more information, visit the PWTSC website. To see pictures and video from last year's Duck Splash Race, see Keri's coverage of the event.
