This was the scene earlier this afternoon, as the first of over 2,000 plastic ducks entered the Great Duck Race chute.
The winning duck won a $5,000 gift card. Nine other winners split another $5,000.
The fun- and fundraising event — complete with face painting, a bouncy ride and more — helps Westport’s Sunrise Rotary Club distribute tens of thousands of dollars to good causes, here and around the world.
