This morning I attended a function at West Lakes. Organised by the Adelaide Rotary Club, this duck race was raising money for the Animal Welfare League and Rotary's local and international projects including the eradication of polio.
The first race (pictured) was the major sponsors' race. The main event that followed featured hundreds of much smaller ducks that were purchased by members of the public for $5.
The whole event was pitched at families with other activities provided for children along with food and drink stalls for everyone.
