Members of the Westport Sunrise Rotary Club have been prepping thousands of rubber ducks to compete Saturday in the club's "Great Duck Race" on the Saugatuck River.

They're getting their ducks in a row for Saturday's "Great Duck Race" down the Saugatuck River.

Members of the Westport Sunrise Rotary Club are prepping bright yellow rubber duckies -- 3,000 of them, to be precise -- for the big swim, which features $10,000 in prizes.

The annual event takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Jesup Green.

Those buying a $20 raffle ticket become eligible for a $5,000 gift card first-place prize, $1,000 gift card second-place prize and $500 gift cards for third through 10th places.

Tickets are on sale at Fairfield County Bank, corner of Post Road and Compo Road South; the Russell Agency, 317 Pequot Ave., Fairfield, and from any Sunrise Rotary member.

Proceeds from the Great Duck Race benefit the club's community causes and charities.
