GREENCASTLE, Pa. - A different kind of duck bobbed down the Conococheague Creek Sunday afternoon.
More commonly seen in bathtubs, more than 1,000 bright yellow and orange-billed rubber ducks took to larger waters for the American Cancer Society's eighth annual Duck Derby.
"It's been a good fund-raiser ... It's quite a sight to see a thousand yellow ducks going down the water," said Connie Hartman, Duck Derby committee member.
Adults and children walked along the banks of the creek as they followed the ducks' progress from Martin's Mill Bridge Recreational Area to the finish at the covered bridge about three-tenths of a mile downstream.
