As some of you may know, I love ducks! I even have a duck bathroom. So, my mom told me about a duck event in New York City on August 6. There were approximately 25,000 rubber ducks that took the plunge into the East River and raced from the Brooklyn Bridge to South Street Seaport for the 2008 Duck Race! The race was a charity benefit for the Special Olympics. Too bad I wasn't in NYC at the time to attend the duck race. That sounded like a blast!
