Rubber Ducks Invaded the Danube for Charity

Rubber Ducks Invaded the Danube for Charity

A paddling of yellow rubber ducks floated down the Danube in front of the Parliament during a rubber duck race for charity in Budapest, szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu reports.

Thousands of rubber ducks were thrown into the Danube from Margit Bridge during a rubber duck race for charity on Sunday. Nearly 52,000 rubber ducks were used for this action.

These charity duck races have been organised around the world since the 90s. The event has already taken place in Australia, London, Taiwan, and Singapore but one has never taken place in Hungary until now, the race was held to benefit the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

This event, called Kacsafutam is not only a charity event, but a contest as well. In the past few months everybody had the opportunity to buy a duck from one of the duck points, or online. At the end of the race owners of the fastest ducks got gifts from the organizers.

The Hungarian Kayak and Canoe Association organised a boating show before the race, and a number of popular musicians performed after the ducks finished the contest.
