Ten thousand ducks invade West Palm Beach, Florida

The city of West Palm Beach set the nation’s woes onto the back burner Sunday to engage in something that’s guaranteed to put a grin on everyone’s face, no matter their age:

Rubber duckies — 10,000 of them, according to local news sources.

The ducks swam in a half-block long pool in the popular shopping district in downtown West Palm to benefit Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches for its third Annual Duck Derby, according to United Press International.

Each duck had a barcode that may or may not correspond to a prize. Participants purchased tickets for the opportunity to fish ducks out of the pond while blindfolded.

They paid $5 per duck, $25 for six ducks or $100 for 25.

Prizes ranged from meals at local restaurants all the way up to a grand prize worth $5,000 — a vacation at an Orlando resort.
