It was the perfect day to enjoy some free swimming and some entertainment, as the official Duck Derby benefitting SPLASH began at 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

More than 500 plastic ducks were dumped into the George C. Brown Pool and had to make their way across the water to the finish line.

Sixteen prizes were awarded, with the top prize being $500.
