A brilliant blue sky greeted thousands of bright yellow rubber ducks that splashed into Lake Lanier during the Duck Derby held at Lake Lanier Olympic Venue last month.

The event, now in its 26th year, supports the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lake Lanier.

The May 11th event featured kids games, food vendors, music and more leading up to the main event.

According to the organization, the grand prize winner of $10,000 in cash was Paul Kindzia; first place, Joyce Jone; second place, Daniela Garcia; third place, Ranjita Yalamanchili; fourth place, David Thomas; fifth place, Shonqueta Rongel; sixth place, Michael Ferrero; seventh place, Odillia Fadool; and eight place, David Chester.

The amount of money raised was not available at press time.
