Volunteers collect rubber ducks from the Vedder Canal after Saturday’s Optimist Club of Chilliwack duck race.

Tim Gunning won the $1,500 first prize from his duck purchase at Yarrow Days.

Other winners received pizza for a year, an iPad Air, an air tour of the Fraser Valley and a Harrison golf getaway.

The Chilliwack Centre of Excellence paddling club donated their time to escort the ducks for the fourth annual event. Almost 1,200 ducks competed in the river race.
