Yellow Duck Race

After waking up and departing from Deadwood, I drove to Rapid City with Ruth. After dumping our bags at the hotel, we went and participated in what i think is the funniest charity event i’ve seen for a while, the Rapid City Duck Race.

Essentially, you buy a little yellow rubber duck for $5, they throw them into a big tractor and dump them in the creek. We then watch as 15,000 rubber ducks float down the river towards the finish line. The owner of the first duck to cross the finish line wins a prize!

After the race began, we did a little shopping before heading out to revisit Mt Rushmore. Tomorrow we head out to The Badlands.
