The 8th annual Paducky Derby is coming October 22, when 20,000 rubber ducks will splash down in Montgomery Lake at Noble Park.

Adoption of each duck has begun, and more than 3,000 have already been claimed. The past two years have been sellouts before race time.

It's the largest fundraiser of the year for the Merryman House Domestic Crisis Center, to support local victims of domestic violence. 

The three fastest ducks in the derby will score prizes for their adoptive parents of $2,500, $1,000 and $500.

Ducks are available for 5 dollars apiece, a "quack pack" of 6 for $25, or a flock of 12 ducks for $50.
