GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville’s Reedy River will be filled with yellow rubber ducks on Saturday for the annual Reedy River Duck Derby.

The annual rubber duck river race is put on by the Rotary Club of Greenville and proceeds benefit local charitable organizations.

Local businesses, organizations and residents can adopt a rubber duck that will participate in the race, which sends the ducks down the river, cascading over the falls, and to a finish line near the old Camperdown mill site.

The Rotary Club said more than 10,000 rubber ducks are expected to take part in the river race.

The fun starts at 10:30 a.m. with live music from The Reed Miller Project, Retro Vertigo, and KellyJo & Bufaloe 

The race starts at 2:30 p.m.

Organizers said the proceeds will benefit the Mauldin Miracle League, Greenville Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (GAIHN), EarlyAct FirstKnight, Polio Plus, Partners in Agriculture, and other groups.
