ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — People brought out their rubber duckies for the Duck Derby held on Saturday.
The event was held at Washington Park Lake in Albany.
Over 5,000 ducks made an appearance, all hoping to splash their way to the $1,500 cash prize.
Those who came out to the event also enjoyed ‘Back-to-School-Fest’, which featured fun activities, food, and live music to kick off the school year.
“It’s a fundraiser for our program, which is a college access and success program, and we help students in Albany, Schenectady, and Troy,”
All the proceeds from the event will go towards over 230 local scholars enrolled in Sponsor-A-Scholar’s college access and success programs.
