Nearly 1,100 rubber duckies swam from the Redwood Creek in Ramsey Park down the Redwood River to the swayback bridge Sunday for the first Duck Dash. The dash was a fundraiser to help pay for the city’s 150th anniversary celebrations in June. Originally set for June 21, but spring flooding made the river too dangerous for the duck wranglers.
