Hungarion version

Rotary Club in Szentendre, Hungary have been organising their rubber duck race every summer for years now. They pour aproximately a thousand yellow rubber ducks into the creek crossing their city. The peacefully swimming rubber ducks are welcome by the noise of excited  children until they make their way to the finish line. Under the bridge crossing the creek the race concludes the announcement of the winner whose award in 2013 was a bicycle.
