Thousands of people made their way to Lumsden for this years Duck Derby on Labour Day Monday.
The large crowd watched as about 20,000 rubber ducks raced down the Qu’Appelle River in the town.
Mayor Bryan Matheson said the volunteers played a huge role in this years duck derby.
“You know we started with people way back when, and now it’s just evolving,” Matheson said. “Young people, they’re so good, people grumble about them, but in Lumsden they’re so good and they step up. They just do a tremendous job, we can’t say enough.”
Money raised from the event goes towards recreation in the town in an attempt to keep costs low for various activities.
Matheson said the duck derby is a tremendous display of small town Saskatchewan at its finest.
“I’ve heard numerous people (Monday) say this is just so good,” Matheson said. “It displays just what Saskatchewan’s all about, and our town, we’ve done it many different ways, we’ve got a different committee, it’s always evolving, and they’ve just done a tremendous job.”
A woman from Regina had the number one duck this year.
Angelica Walker won the $20,000 prize.
